Fork removal isn't exceptionally hard provided you've got some mechanical aptitude. You need to make sure you have the bike stabilized and off the front wheel.
Basically you are going to:
1. Lift & stabilize bike
2. Remove calipers
3. Remove front wheel
4. Remove Fender
5. Loosen clipons (if you have an S model)
6. Loosen upper triple tree clamps
7. You may want to loosen your fork caps to make it easier for the shop to get them off so they don't ding the crap ou tof them.
8. Loosen lower tree clamps and slide the forks out.
Again, you need to make absolutely sure your bike is secure. When not using a front stand, I like to put a 2x4 or pipe through under the front cylinder and stabilize it with jackstands on each side. I always leave a floor jack under the bike taking a little pressure as well (I use a small piece of 2x4 between the jack & engine, I don't know if it is really necessary.)
When you reassemble, pay attention in the manual to the order, it is important for proper wheel alignment.
FWIW, I can remove forks in under 15 minutes when pressed, but I"ve done it quite a few times.
