That seems like a lot. What did they do?
I recently did this myself. According to the service manual all that is required at 12K is to change the oil and filter and spark plugs plus clean the air filter. I also did a throttle body sync (this requires a special tool I bought for $70) as well but it still took only an 1.5 hours at my slow, beginning amateur mechanic, rate of progress.
plugs - $30
oil - synthetic $35
dealer oil filter - $14
Suggest downloading the service manual from the tech section. It guides you through maintenance steps like a recipe book. All that is required to do basic maintenance on this bike is an allan key set, set of screw drivers, a ratchet/socket set and oil collection pan and funnel.
