I actually installed my (Suzuki) center stand today as well. I would say it's mostly a one person job, and pretty straight forward. The springs were the only issue and tested me a bit. I ended up doing the rope trick, namely using the hook on the spring as a pulley, giving me leverage to pull it onto the stand. The big spring took some effort, but I finally got it.
Although it didn't call for it, I used blue loctite on all bolts. I figure it's probably a good idea.
