It's probably only the fork oil that needs to be replaced.
Maintainance information is located in the owners manual. Cost varies worldwide. Labor rate at my dealer is $115 an hourHi Guys,
I am from India and just booked GS310. I was wondering what is maintenance interval for GS after breaking period and what is the average cost per servicing.
I have heard we need to change chain sprocket and fork after every 15000 km. Chain sprocket is ok but why Fork???
My first service was... 60,54€ !
Yes, it's US$ 70 ! But there is a trick, they (BMW Cannes, French Riviera) did offered me labor fee, probably to convince me to come back for future services, but anyway I was more than surprised
They might do "more" than an oil change, as per the checklist they are supposed to follow. However, the rest of the items on that checklist are pretty easy tasks that most can do themselves and certainly not worth a $289 invoice.In the US I paid $289 for my 1st service, which I thought was a joke. I know they are suppose to do more than change the oil. They told me that it takes 2 hours to complete. They were done with the bike in an hour and 15 minutes, but charged me for the whole 2 hours. I walked away feeling cheated. All my other motorcycles, I did the 1st oil change and never had any issue. The next new bike, I will do it my self.
There is a separate thread on the alternative to the GS911, being the German MotoScan, which will set you back $100 but included in that is a generic bluetooth OBD LX reader that will also read and clear most car codes when used with various apps.They might do "more" than an oil change, as per the checklist they are supposed to follow.

That's why I chose to do it myself on mine.
Only thing that no one is really able (yet -- at least without paying a lot of money for a GS911 device) is the step where they reset the countdown to next service, so the service symbol might appear one day (surprisingly still haven't appeared on mine, after 4000 KMs)..
For reference here's the 1st service checklist as I've already posted in the past:
