Question Cr 125 fork seal

I was wondering if you need any special tools to change the fork seals on a cr 125(1986). What do i have to do to change them? Any help would be apreciated, also how much do you think someone should charge to change fork seals,if i am providing them?

If it was anything like my old bike, alls you have to do is remove the forks from the triple trees, then remove the black dustcaps, then you can just violently (haha) pry out the seals and replace them.....it's really easy, i'd do it on your own.......i called up a place around my area and they said they'd charge 50 bucks......

My advice is this...if you don't have a manual then I would see if you can get somebody to show you how to do it the first time, that way you see just what tools you need, and hopefully learn the proper procedure. It's really not that difficult to do but watching somebody with some experience is worth their price of admission. You will likely pay the same price on the labor involved and would only be saving yourself the cost of the seals.

To change them you will need either impact gun or damper rod holding tool, a 14mm hex bit or allen wrench. You have to remove the damper rod bolt/assembly, the

Remove fork cap
remove spring
dump oil
pry up dust cover
remove seal retaining clip
remove damper rod bolt/assembly
and slide hammer the forks apart to knock seals out.

You might as well inspect your bushings, I'm sure they are toast by now. Set oil level around 110mm, use 10 wt fluid

Have fun It's a sloppy good time!

There's a clip to remove somewhere in the process. If you forget the clip, you may become very violent:
