Question Leaking Fork - Where to fix them?

Hi, I just found out that one of my forks is leaking really bad. It's really weird because I have hardly ridden the bike ever since I got it back in Dec because of the weather. And it sure wasn't leaking at the moment I bought it because I checked it, so...

Where do you guys recommend to take the bike to get the problem fixed? I really don't a lot of other bike shops apart from the vendors here, and most of them are a little far from where I live.

At the same time, how much you guys think this repair is going to end up costing me? (I'll probably have them work both of the forks, I just don't want to run into the same situation in a little bit again.)

Motorcycle Unlimited always has my recommendation. Although they are far, its worth the drive.

What part of town are you in? I'm central (near galleria) and Motorcycles Unlimited is 30 minutes or less away, and they're a good shop. PM Patrick and see what he will quote you.

Already did. Thanks.

I'm on the West. The thing about driving far is that I don't feel really comfortable riding the bike like it is.

Any ways around not having a front stand? I'm new to all this, but I have the service manual so I wouldn't mind playing for a little bit while saving some $$$. Any Ideas?

You can use a couple of ratcheting tiedown straps to hang the front of the bike from rafters, if you have any exposed.
