Go to this site and you can download a free PDF service manual. There is a '76 manual there. It is close enough to your '78 to be extremely helpful as not much of anything changed in those two years. The listing just says "Suzuki GS750 ". Page 90 has a diagram. Page 93 says to mix 50/50 10w30 motor oil and standard ATF (automatic transmission fliuid) for the fork oil. You do not need to tear down the forks to install a new seal and the seal can be installed without the special tool.
Go to the site below where you can see a parts diagram for your specific bike. You will select the actual brand, year, model, etc., once you go to the site. Part numbers and prices are also shown. You can order parts from this site. In the event no price is shown on a particular part, the part is not in stock. www.babbittsonline.com/pages/parts/viewbybrandand/parts.aspx

call a bike shop they can tell you how much oil or how far to fill them just make sure you have the fork compressed before you put the oil in.. and the spring has to be in before oil

It's not that easy. You really need a manual to assist. Also, the fork oil level is specific, and you need to measure it by cc's or by millimeters, according to the specs.
Also...the seals need to be installed with a drive that's made for your fork size.
I recommend a good manual, as the factory one is the best.
Adding up cost of tools also may warrant taking it to a professional.

The best way to fill fork oil is to add the specified amount and let the forks sit overnight to allow all entrained air escape. Leave the fill plugs off. Ofter you let the air escape, plug it up install the forks and add air to the desired pressure if has that option.
