I found them super easy to put on.. they just come in small arcs or sections that you stick on one at a time.

Depends on your level of OCD!
I've done this several times in the past, so it wasn't too bad. Helps a great deal to have stands, so your wheels can be turned without moving the bike/handlebar.

2015 Suzuki V-Strom DL650 bought new 4/26/17
2015 Victory Cross Country bought new 7/11/15 (dyno tuned 118hp 116tq)
If it's not broken, make it better
My take on oil: Name brand, wet clutch compatible.....BAM good to go.

I've used Tapeworks reflective tape on three bikes - it's a continuous strip. Their application tool makes it fairly straightforward and very neat if you're careful.

That looks like a great way to go, if you don't mind paying a bit more ($25). The one I use is $4 and holds up surprisingly well (had it one one bike for 30k miles)
