The 15K is a major service, and that's par for the course, not too bad actually. You'll need a belt, oil and filter, whatever shims the valves may or may not take, replace fluids (coolant, brake fluid) if necessary, and if you need brake pads, add those in too. It takes an experienced mechanic the better part of a working day to disassemble the bike, do the work, walk around and check the called for items and reassemble the bike. A fair enough quote for labor.
