I am by no means a mechanic but I am tight on money so I did my zx6 seals a few years ago. I was petrified but $30 in parts compaired to the $$ at the dealer to do it. First fork took me about 2hrs to do ( minus the bike assembley/reassembley ) and that involved a 15 ride to swap out for the right seals. Once I got it together, I did the second fork in 15 min. was not hard at all. I had no specialty tools. Only thing I remeber that was special was pressing the seals in asked for a special tool, how ever I had been advised to use a large socket the size of the seal and a hammer to tap it in. also mark your forks before you take them off so you know were to return them. Turned out to be a very simple thing to do. Hardest part was finding a way to hold the bike up so I could take it apart. I used a heavy duty A frame ladder and some rachet straps to the frame.
