You don't need any special tools to disassemble normal forks, keep the fork
assembly together and use a allen key socket and air impact gun to loosen
the bottom allen key before pulling the caps off the top.

On my web site I have pictures of the process for both my z1000A2 and my
GPz900R. Once the allen key comes apart you can pull the legs apart and do
the seal.

If you need to pull the dampers apart then you need to remove the caps, but
it should take less than 20 minutes to replace each seal.
