883 bottom end

I have an 883 with 14,000km on it. My mechanic says that there is a grinding type sound coming from the bottom of the engine. So i went over there tonight and listened, and there is. He says that it could be the bearings in the bottom end, and motor would need to be tore out and disassembled and new bearings and some machining work would have to be done. And says it could cost from $2500-$4000 CND. I just bought the bike (fisrt one) and never heard it because it had aftermarket pipes. i put the original one on for safetey, but because the aftermarket ones are so loud, u couldn't hear that grinding sound. Well basically i was wondering, how pain in the ass is this job, are the parts needed really going to cost that much? Does this sound right?
