I need to replace the fork seals on my '85 R80RT. I have looked in my trusty Clymer's and Haynes and according to them (at least as far as I can see) I need to totally remove the forks to do this. I have replaced fork seals on an R90S before and do not remember it being that big of a deal.

Can anyone provide any guidance to me on this. Replacing the fork seals should not be an all day event.

Any help would be appreciated.
