Fork seals

Use the rear axle. Just reverse the crown nut, lock it in place (I used
a nail). The crown nut is the perfect size to drop into the top of the
cylinder. Plenty of length with the axle. While you've got the axle off,
get a new rear tire mounted.

Ok, who has changed their front fork seals without the "special tool" to

hold the internal cylinder from turning while you remove the bottom 
allen head bolt.  On my Sabre we can remove the similar bolt while the 
springs are still inside, but when I try that with the GPZ fork, the 
unit just turns.  Any suggestions since I already have my front end
