It's fairly easy to do, but takes a little knowledge of electricity and some tools. Years ago I make a little 12v / 1 amp power supply for this and other tasks. Attached to the alternator terminal along with a voltmeter to monitor activity, it keeps everything under power when you remove/replace the battery. Picture from last weekend.....
Oh, and consider upsizing your battery. A Group 24 fits well and is roughly the same physical size as the Group 25 with it's plastic cozy.
