which way do the fork seals go on?

A cheap and simple tool for adding or removing that last bit of fork oil is 
a large syringe (30 or 60 cc)with a measured amount of tubing shoved on the 
needle end.  If you have to add oil just push on the plunger or pull to 
remove oil.  A turkey baster will work too but it is not as accurate and if 
your wife sees you using it (even if is your own) you will be in shit, 
before you get a chance to explain.  Trust me on this "been there done it". 
You can get syringes at you local pharmacy.  They are also excellent water 
They are also good for injecting gasoline into the carburetor of something 
you are trying to start.  Saves on a lot of kicking or pulling if you have a 
stuck needle valve or other fuel line blockage.  I have a couple of old 
Honda XL250s that fire up with 2 kicks each spring with this method, 
otherwise its a dislocated old knee.
