The bike I'm getting is at 9400 miles. at 10k it's a pretty big service: carb sync, idle speed check, spark plug, air cleaner element, brake pad check, fuel hose check, brake fluid, clutch adjust, drive chain wear check, steering check, nuts bolts and fasteners check, oil change, front fork oil, uni-trak linkage, coolant change, radiator hoses check.
It's exhausting/overwhelming to think about doing all that stuff myself nor do I really want to. For the good of the bike and my self.
and define "raped" lol. 300?
When I got my forks done, which was a 3 hour job I paid 240 dollars for labor because I brought all the parts that were needed in so that's about 80/hour?
A lot of that stuff you don't need. Brake pads, hoses, clutch, front fork oil, linkages? that's all visual inspection and not a big deal at 9400. I'd do a brake fluid flush, oil change, clean, check, and adjust chain/sprockets. Air cleaner and spark plugs, and call it a day. Find a manual online and learn to do it all yourself, it'll save you lots of money in the long run.
If you really want help and want to learn, I'm not an expert, but I'm mechanically inclined enough that I could help you out with most of it or figure it out and I live in the Anaheim/Orange area. I can do most of the above except for the carb synch, since I never did it before my 500 got wrecked, and I'm fuel injected now.
