forkin seals

It all depends. If you take the forks in loose, then approx 1hrs labour + seals + oil.

If you take the whole bike in, then who knows?? 2-3hrs labour??

Fortunate that it's the front ones they're cheaper to replace than the rear fork seals, they're a real pig :biggrin:

Are you mechanically minded at all? I ask as fork seals aren't a complicated job and could be done by yourself, replacement seals would be about £20.
Otherwise cheapest option is to remove the forks from the yokes, (ask a friend to hold the frame whilst you unbolt the legs and whip them out then say, right stay there, i'll be back in a couple of hours, or use a jack under the engine if your friends don't have a sense of humour), then take them to your garage, as eats says you're looking at about an hours labour.
