Question Labor time for servo assisted brake oil replacement???

I'm taking my K12S in for the 30000km service, and the dealer said that replacing the brake fluid would be 4 hours labor on the servo assisted brake system(2005-2006). I know it's a lengthy process, but does this sound right? Anyone know what the book time is for this?

I know alot of Canadians come to the USA for service, due to exchange rate,lack of faith in their dealer. FYI.

4 hours seems way too long. My first time doing a fluid flush on my servo equipped ABS took 2.5 hours following the manual.

James - that sounds about right - there's a certain time / code for certain work done. It depends on your Service person & how often you are in. Things / prices CAN BE TWEEKED
Call a USA dealer & ask time & cost - some dealers have 800. #'s - it's free to ask, for piece of mind.

I did it a few weeks ago. Took me maybe an hour. You have to remove the body panels covering the fuel tank and said fuel tank. Then, assuming you have the funnel that acts as a reservoir for fresh fluid, it takes about 20 minutes taking your time.

Different bike ('03 K1200GT), same system. Book says 3.5 hours. Yours doesn't sound too far out of the norm for the dealer. First time I did it myself it was 5 hours, but that was a "Tech-Daze" and we were working on four bikes at the same time. Second time was just a tic over 3 hours.

Replacement is depend on different bike design and parts and also on excellence of mechanic so if mechanic so good then it would take minimum hours for do this if the vehicle design not so complicated for replace that particular part.So according to me it is not so much time of 4 hours , it general hours.
