Replacing Thottle return cable

Has know if it's easy to replace the return throttle cable on a 08 vstar 1100 custom? That's right. 1.5 years old and 6100 miles my throttle cable snapped at the control switch end. I ordered the part and was wondering if it's an easy fix or should I get raked over the coals from Yamaha

Pretty straight forward. You want some slop (play) between the throttle biginning movement and when the carb shaft starts to rotate.
