Absolutely you want to be using a torque wrench and the correct torque settings when dealing with the front wheel and fork. Do not guesstimate on this part of the motorcycle. It's not difficult to do as long as you have the correct tools. Get the service manual. It tells you the correct torque settings and the order you should reassemble and tighten bolts. I think I found it online for about $30.
Assuming you have the manual, tools, and a way to get the weight off the front wheel, go for it. You'll have to learn how to do it at some point anyway when you replace the front tire.
