What? Did a dealer do that? If so its the first time I've heard they'd touch the EHCS and not just replace the entire assembly.
Unfortunately you can do it yourself for about $60 or less (if in the US).
Hope they did more than just swap the motor over....
I think it would be a good time to arm yourself with some information (available here) and question the price!

Re: Center Stand Motor Replacement

I think that was the cost for the whole unit. Did you get to keep he old one? If so I would like to have it for parts. By the way next time it quits working you can get it rebuild for under $200, but not by a dealer.
