Try starting it then pull the plug out right after trying if the plug is wet you have to much fuel and the float is stuck or has a hole in it and it is most likely your problem if you have fire. if it is flooded you can pull out the spark plug and clean it and kick the motor over to get excess gas out of the cylinder try installing it again then start it, does it fire up? if it does it's flooded due to the problem listed above. If it does not start pull plugs out again add a cap of motor oil in the cylinders and if the plugs are dry reinstall plugs and see if it runs, If it does it may have stuck rings the capful of oil will make the rings seat once this happens they rings should loosen up if not and it will not run after you shut it off then you have low compression. This is assuming you know you have a blue spark to the plug and have cleaned and gapped the plug or plugs. If you need more help psot here and reply tothe e-mail you recieved with this. Hope this helps.

Are you talking about the inner seals or outers seals ,either way its a long and labour intensive job.If you have never done it before then its best to get help from a friend ,Fitting the seals is quite easy ,its the stripping down that takes the time ,and how much oil to put in is found in your workshop manual .if you don't have a manual then you may find one in your local libary .

Most forks have a bolt underneath, usualy a hex key type, sometimes the nut inside the fork turns, and you then need very long socket extension to hold it tight.
Once this bolt is undone, the forks should come apart.
Sometimes, you can prise out the old seals, and slide the new ones on, without taking things apart.

its not an impossible job, but there are a couple of special tools that make it easier. and a couple of areas to stuff it all up.
A manual would be needed if you havent done it before. The manual takes 4-5 pages of explanation.
A good bike mechanic should do both seals in less than 1 hour, if you remove the forks.
If they arnt leaking oil, they may be OK, The seal that is visible and looks cracked may just be the dust seal, this just pushes into the top of the fork leg above the fork oil seal

Well, when you take off the fork make sure you empty it first before anything else then make sure that the fork pressure spring is released before changing the seals. The fork oil amount should be no more than 200 cc or no less than 190 cc
