I have the same GP lines and did the installation a couple months back. It's very straight forward, and easy as long as you are careful with the brake fluid. Not only is it toxic, it'll mess with painted surfaces.
I would recommend getting a torque wrench and/or a Mityvac bleeding tool, but if you don't, just don't go crazy tightening the banjo bolts as they are only aluminum (usually 13ft-lbs) and be prepared to use a lot of brake fluid and patience when bleeding it.
You should have received instructions with your kit, but if not, I still have mine. I could scan them if you needed them.
As for brake fluid, if you are a street rider DOT4 is more than good enough. DOT5&6 usually don' offer that much more of an advantage in wet boiling point (nor do you really need it on the street). Unless you're flushing your fluid bi-yearly and keep the bike dry all the time, there isn't much of a point. I have used Motul 5.1 with good results.
