not hard take 1 off put the other one on. tighten it up till it puts a little tension on the chain. start bike (unless you're kind of good don't do it like this.) tighten it till the rpms drop a little then back it off a hair. done.

The biggest thing you want to watch for is not to have it too tight and to be careful the engine doesn't jump time during removal / installation.
