This is my first post here so a little background. I'm 43 and have been riding street bikes for over 20 years (current bike is a '99 CBR1100XX). I was just given the YZ250 by a friend who is trying to get me in the dirt riding side of things. The bike is in good shape over all but has leaky fork seals. Question: Do I have to take the forks to a dealer to get the seals popped out? The manual shows using a special vice to compress the forks, forcing the seals out.
