I know this is an old post but wanted to put my two cents in. I was able to change my fork seals with all the plastics and controls in place. I just put the bike on the center stand, jacked it up under the engine to raise the front wheel, loosened the pinch bolts, and carefully pulled the tubs out and changed the seals. I used a 1 5/16 socket and a 10 inch extension with a rubber mallet to drive the seals home. you HAVE to drive the seals home even if the retaining clip goes into place or the seals will leak. Took me about 30 minutes for both sides. Good luck!
