If you have the correct tools to remove and re install a fork seal then yes, you can do it.

If you have to ask "which tools do I need", then Id rather suggest you see your dealer to sort it out for you. It is a relative straightforward job but it is a precise job requiring specific tools that the average mechanic do not have.

The only special tool I needed was a RaceTech seal driver, and I'm not sure if I actually needed it but I bought one anyway when I rebuilt my Showas on my ST2 with RaceTech valves, no other special tools needed.

You are probably in for seal replacements, but you can take a shot by using a piece of camera film. Slide it under the mating surface, work it around the fork tube and see if you can improve the seal.
