Without knowing what year and model bike you're working on, I'll have to be "general" in my explanation. To change the fork seals, you must either take the upper and lower fork tube assembly out of the triple trees or be able to lift the bike at least 12 inches off the floor. Once you havef drained the tube by removing the small screw in the trailing side of the slider and worked the fork oil out, taken the front wheel off, the front caliper(s) off and the fender or removed the forks from the triple trees, look at the bottom end of the slider (lower fork). You'll see a special socket head bolt in a recess under there. It takes a 6mm allen wrench or hex key to remove the bolt. It is designed to take a special "piloted" key but you can get it out with a NEW hex key. I prefer one of the hex key sockets that will fit onto an air wrench. It works a lot better. Take the bolt out and the slider comes off the bottom end of the upper tube. Take the rubber boot off the slider, the retainer ring and pry the seal out.

Good Luck
Steve

Replacing the front seal- located on the fork.


To replace the fork seal you must open the top of the fork and remove the spring. Then drop the fork tube out of the clamp. Once the fork tube is removed replacing the seal is simply pulling the old one off and putting the new one on. You will need to remove your front wheel.

Right front fork weeps oil. Will I die?


How long has it been since you've changed your fork oil?
How long has it been since you've changed your fork seals?

If you haven't changed your seals in over 5 years, get your seals changed. Major surgery? Nah... Fork seals is a common procedure, A real good repair shop should be able to do in within the 1 to 2 hour range, depending on the condition of your bike.
Will you die? Only God knows when you're time is up.
