As a general rule I repack my bearings atleast once a Quarter or Once a month if I spend alot of time doing stream crossings.
I would also take the time to check the rear wheel bearings and use the same grease in those. If you have never checked your lower link and the swingarm bearings I would strongly urge you to do so.
A complete bearing service will take about 4 hours (Tear Down/Pack/Re-Assemble) but it is easy to do and can save many dollars.

Check out this months Dirt Rider for advice on maintaining bearings. The only thing I would add is that if you need to apply much force to the inner race to remove the bearing, you should replace it. They are easily damaged. The part number should be stamped in the bearing (something like 6202). Go to a place that sells industrial supplies and you should be able to get them for less than $10.00. If you get bearings with rubber seals (2RSR after the part number) you don't need to maintain them and they should last a long time.
