Just making sure I am not getting ripped here, my bike wouldn't start the other day and it was due for a service anyway. So I booked it in and the shop has had a look at it (gs500f) and come back with the problem being the charging system. Basically the bike isn't charging the battery, so I can charge the battery and ride it but it was just drain and die again. Diagnosing the problem and the service is $480 or something, now to fix the problem (and also replace weeping fork seals) will come to a total of $1500 odd. Is this about right? Is it something I could possibly do myself? I got half way through a sparky apprenticeship before the company I was at went under and I then went travelling so it's been a while but circuits do make some sense to me. I don't mind paying for the work but I'm pretty poor at the moment and will pay for it if it is necessary but if I have an alternative I'd like to explore that.
