On the front of the clamps you will see two round chrome circles. These are fancy hole fillers/plugs. If you gently pry them out with a small screw driver you will find the socket cap bolts you seek to remove the upper triple clamp. If you are trying to put in new fork seals it is more easily done by leaving the tubes in the clamps and sliding the lower fork tubes off the bottom of the fork tubes.

Removal steering

LOOSEN the the bolts that clamp the fork legs to the tree. Remove the fork legs along with the front wheel by pulling down on them. Be careful that the brake hoses and the speedometer aren't damaged. Remove the center nut. Bend the lock washer tang so that the bearing retainer nut can be removed and remove the nut and washer from the center shaft. the tree should slide out from the bottom. Don't remove the bearings from the center shaft unless you are going to replace them. When re-installing the center shaft, tighten the bearing retainer nut just enough so the shaft doesn't shake but not so tight that there is a bind when turning the tree. this can be re-adjusted after all assembly is complete.
Good Luck

2003 vt750dc spirit front fork leaks. what to do?

Don't worry about a little oil on the shock, the seal has gone bad, common problem, usually from a hit on the side pushing it out of round. You need to take them apart, dump the oil in a tray or pan, layout the pieces in order on newspaper or in a big tray, replace the seal, put it all back and pour in a pre-measured amount of fork oil. Be careful pushing the springs back in, Hope this helps.
