You can simply tell your probation officer that you cannot afford the probation. While you cannot be revoked because of inability to pay the fees, you could be revoked for failure to pay restitution.
The judge can sentence you to between 6 months and 2 years in state jail. When you get out, the only way you would have to pay anything is if there is a judgment against you for the restitution.
