$300 for a 500 mile servise is insane. Cost should be a jug of oil[$40] a Filter[$10] a seal ring [$2] and an hour of labor at the shops rate
Your 2500 interval sevices should run 1.5-2 hours along with oil, grease, and cable lube.
Your 15K is gonna run 5-6 hours, and includes pulling the fork legs for service,
What it comes down to is that a service implies MUCH more then an oil change. If you choose to service your own bike then PLEASE make sure you do service it. This includes things like pulling, cleaning and lubing levers, properly lubing cables, inspecting/cleaning electrical conectors, servicing battery, and lubing pivot points. To name just a few items.
