Would like to help you with your problem, but you will need to have more than just the fork seals to complete this project. as it can be tricky for some people.

    first you have to remove top caps they unscrew, but make sure no bottom pressure on them you can clamp lower fork leg in vise i use a couple pieces of wood cut in a v-shape this will prevent springs from putting to much pressure on top caps. once top cap is removed you may have to push upper tube down a bit their should be i think a 19mm nut under the cap place wrench on it while having a ratchet and socket to hold top cap. remove the fork spring and fork spring seat take out. push upper tube all the way down and remove the damping adjuster,from the push rod. remove fork from vise and tip to drain oil pump the push rod a least 10 to 12 xs to remove fork in vise remove bottom cylinder valve in bottom of fork you might have to place a long xtension rod with a socket on it inside upper fork tube to keep it from spinning i think its a 12mm supposed to use a special tool but never had to. after thats loosend you should be able to remove the cylinder assembly from the tube. now where your fork seals are lift up the spring band and slide the dust seal up, you should see a retaining ring use a awl or small screwdriver to remove the retainer ring,grab both ends of tube and push and pull a couple times and tube should seperate i do suggest that you replace the guide bushings and oil seals basically replace in order but put a plastic bag over fork tube to prevent seals from being torn wipe a little oil on them before replacing you should be able to install in order to put fork back toghether fill with oil but pull push rod up and down to remove air bubbles.

    to install the fork seals i have a fork seal installer but you can use a piece of pvc pipe split into to drive the seal home. i hope this helps you as it kinda hard to explain but you shouldnt have a problem. and only do one at a time lay every thing out the way it came out to ease the process.

I have a 2003 kx 85 , It has pro tech suspension , front fork seals are leaking , would stock fork seals fit this protech suspension? How hard would this be to do myself? Ive done lots of other work on...

Stock fork seals will work but if I were you, I woudl take it to someone who has the correct tools take your fork seals out without gouging the fork leg. If your seals are leaking then chances are you're also low in fluid. Your fluid level is what decides how hard or soft your front end is (In addition to fork spring rate).

KX 125 (2003) motorcycle

its 120 mm or 4.7 inches from the top of the fork
Some measure the oil quantity and fill the fork up, some fill the fork up and measure the oil level. The most correct method is to measure the level, I guess, but many guys measure in quantity.. both ways work well.
