Looks like it's pretty easy to do, if you have the right loop, it's definitely a diy job.

I haven't done it myself but make check if the new loop has the right ending, some of them have a rectangle thingy and some of them it's a circle (talking about the ring end you have to re engage when you quick release. Not sure if square end is compatible with circle one or vice versa.
People who tried my bar where like "you have got to change the chicken loop right away, it's too long", but I kind of like it.
It's easy to stay fully powered
and on kiteloop you are less likely to sheet out when you get scared. I don't really like when your arm are too close to body when fully sheet in.
I am beginner for unhook but on that one you can't complain that it's hard to rehook.
