It's about ~$600-700 for a shop, easily the cost of doing it yourself+manual+parts+a tuneboy. I am doing this right now on my 07, and I have about 8 hours in it so far (following the manual... and I'm not a trained mechanic). I have everything done but the oil change, brakes and headstock bearing ($500.00 so far including the tuneboy). The hardest part is checking the valve clearances. If they are good, then it is smooth sailing, otherwise it can get ugly.
The biggest benefit of doing it yourself is that by the end you have all the tools and experience for the same or less than it would cost you at a shop... and you get a tuneboy!
If you have trouble checking your own oil I would suggest taking it to a dealer, otherwise read the manual step by step and your golden. PM me if you need help, I might be able to help you out since I am doing it myself.
