You will get hosed if you take it to the dealer....maybe not as bad if you took them the carb. instead of the whole bike....If i were you i would do a little research to build your confidence and rebuild it yourself....I'm not kidding when i say, its so easy.....a caveman could do it LOL. Just remember where everything goes, take lots of pictures from start to finish and you will be just fine....even if you dont get it right we can school you right along on how to get it done correctly.

Get sticky notes and a sharpie and put them on the bolts you take out and you'll be sure to get them back where they belong. That and taking pictures is the best advice anyone can give you for your first time tearing into something.

You may have already finished it by now, but another idea is as you take it apart lay the part out on a clean rag in the order that they go together. Kind of of like make your own exploded diagram that have in the manuals.

Pics are always good, especially as the project get bigger cuz sometime things come up and you never know when you'll get back to them.
