$1000 to me seems absurd...no matter what all is done.
Just my two cents.
You could buy a whole new front end for that amount of money.
Changing the fork oil.
Replacing the Guide and Slide metals.
Replacing the fork seals.
Less then $60 in parts.
$940 in labor? The work can be done in about 3 hours. You can find tutorials on this in the "How To" section.
If you want to add new springs, that would be about another $100.
If you want to add Gold Valve Emulators, that would be about another $150.
If you want to add a fork brace of some kind, (Superbrace), that would be another $150.
If you want to add sealed bearings to the front wheel, that would be about $30.
Still way under $1,000 even with labor factored in.
