I'm going to be replacing my fork seals for the first time in an 06 yz450f and 08 yz250f. I would get a 48mm fork seal driver, right? And I would need a 48mm fork cap removal tool as well, correct?

The seal driver is 48mm, yes, but the cap/cartridge wrench is an 8 point 49mm. You may also want the base valve removal wrench (32mm 8 point) so you can do a full oil change.

fork bullet so you can put the new seals on without chancing tearing the seal.

Part 1 of 3 series. Good to watch first so your are mentally prepared.

The bullet is a waste of money. The plastic bag the seal comes in works just as well.
