anyone out there got a link or pics of how to replace your front fork seals on an 06 yz450f. I dont want to take it to a shop if its not to difficult to do.

There's the manual:

It isn't a particularly difficult job, but you will need at least a proper octagonal wrench to remove the damper cartridge, and a seal driver. If you want do full oil change, you'll need a base valve wrench also.

Go to They've got the Tusk tools and the quality how to vids. Its not a hard job, and it is one that you'll probably end up doing pretty often if you ride a lot. Worth learning how, oh and there is a great suspension section on this thumper talk site.
