I only had the dealer do the brake flush and the valve adjust (check only in my case). The valve adjust check ran about $150 and the brakes about $180. That was at Razee's in RI. I did the 24k myself. (only need to do the brake flush every 2 years so I didn't need to do that at 24k)

'07 - R1200RT Slippery Silver

MOA #107139
RA #28511

Past rides:
'03 R1150RT - MAXed out
'03 K1200LTC - Gone to the Darko side
'00 Kawasaki Concours - Buzz
'71 Honda SL350 - The original dual-sport
'72 Kawasaki 250 triple - The smoking gun
'67 Montgomery Wards 125 - Thrashed to death

Since you don't even have to remove tupperware to do it, I would suggest learning to do the brake flush yourself. You can do both the brake and clutch without much hassle. I would suggest a Mighty Vac for the clutch, but it isn't a requirement. Just be careful not to suck the resevoir dry. Same deal with the brakes, but the ABS pumps do almost all the work for you.

You'll save lots of coin and won't have the hassle of dropping the bike off. Of course since it only needs to be done every other year, you basically have to learn it each time. There are some good instructions in the Hall of Wisdom. Throw in an oil, transmission, and rear end fluid change; then you are pretty much done.

The valves probably don't need to be checked. It is a little more in depth and requires more mechanical inclination than the rest of the stuff. It can be done with some patience though.
