Anyone know where I can get fork seals fixed for cheap?

I have a 01 YZF R6. Bought it a month ago for a decent price and it needed some repairs. I've been holding off on getting it registered and inspected cause it still needs a few more kinks that need to be worked out.
The last few things I need to get fixed are replacing the chain (which is being shipped to me soon...need to find a chain breaker) and my left fork seal is leaking.
Since this is my first bike (and well face it I am a female so mechanics will try and rip me off) I wanted to know what it usually cost to get that fixed (including labor)?
PM me if you know any good mechanics that will do a good job for a decent price. Thank you.
I live in Humble area.

You also have to factor in just bringing in the forks or the whole bike. That will affect the price.

ALSO, don't forget that leaking fork oil COULD have got on the brake rotor(s) and pads. If it did, then you will need to get new pads and clean off that rotor before re-installing. Fork oil will ruin pads and cut your stopping power in half.

Just my .02
