New biker new service prices

Hi All
I am a new biker riding a Yamaha XT 125X.
Recently I discovered that my rear tyre is losing air. Checked the tyre it had nothing. Apparently the problem must be inside on the valve on the tube because it wont lose all the air but it will go down where it cannot be riden safely. Anyway I took it to a service garage yesterday and the guy couldnt give me a precise price ( I had to leave it there overnight) but he mentioned it would be something in the region of 40 to 60 pounds.
Does this sound right?I have no clue about the prices on motorbike service since its my first time. I know the tubes are not that expensive.
Any advice welcome

Servicing

At a Yamaha dealer it's not going to be cheap. My local Yamaha shop charges £50 per hour for labour plus full price on any parts.  If it is only a tyre issue you wiill be far better off going to a tyre shop rather than a motorcycle dealership.  There are those around that provide services for bikes as well as cars.

tube change

Yeah I did. But if its just for the tube its too expensive. I found my tyre online and it costs 60-70 quid just the rear. So I guess the tube cannot cost the same

Main dealers

The price will be for removing the wheel, fitting a tube and then replacing the wheel. So it's probably an hours labour and then the cost of the tube.
