Depends on the melting point of your solder..... Keep it low. Never go higher than what corresponds to 30W on these PCBs imo.. I use around 20W.
Also, 28-30 AWG kynar wire should wire just fine for this sort of job.
I have had a lot of issues about the wire breaking, watch out with bending it.
It used to break for me - until I became more careful, down near the solderpoint. The solder hardens the wire, so it breaks inside the cable near the solder joint.
It has broken a few times inside the cord too, but not that many. as Jap said, prebend it - just in case.
and avoid bending it down at the solderarea after having soldered it in position.
