Is it a heard thing to do?
Do you need any special tools or greases?
How much oil does it contain?
How does it happen that one oil seal leaks from one day at another very heard and on the dust seal is nothing to see.
I have a 00WR400F YZ timed.

There may be a link to this procedure on the site...but I can't find it.
Another thing, normally I'm a gen Part person, always have been , however a friend with a 426 has no luck with gen Yam fork seals, but is still on his first set of pattern seals, with NO leaks!
Theres logic somewhere in there...but I'm dammned if I can Find it

Check the archives that's what I had to do.

I had been using the film swipe method for a year plus, but the leaks were happening way too often. The money you save doing it yourself will pay for the seal driver.
If you can get an impact wrench and a 14mm hex bit it is worth removing the dampening assembly at least once to flush the crud out. You'll be surprised!
You will want to replace the piston and slider bearings while you are in there. I found that '96 cr250 oil and dust seals work on wr's and are sold as a pair for under $15 per leg! Time will tell how durable they are.
Remember to cycle the damper rod several times up and down through it's travel after you fill with oil because until you do that you will get a false level.
