how hard to add stem riser

can a relatively non mechanical person put a stem riser on a threadless handlebar or change stem without going to lbs or would it be too difficult? My bike mechanics so far has been limited to changing tire and putting on computer.

Riser.........

farrellcollie,

Might depend on the cables. If they are too short you might need to go to lbs.

Thanks for the responses. Since I didn't really understand the Sheldon Brown site info - it may be beyond me to change it out.
