Are Nitto quill stems easy to throw on a Kilo, considering they're all threaded?

Thinking of picking this up, but not sure on the install of it.

I really need a stem for my bike, preferably a black one for my color scheme.
Any recommendations?

^^^Thanks in the past 5 min or so from my post asking about the Nitto, I ended up having an epiphany and will no longer be interested in quill stems.
Too much work and $$$ for my threadless kilo.

What kind of saddle would you guys recommend for a more aggressive riding position? Currently running rb-021s with 17-degree stem.
