I'm going to change the fork oil in my Ohlins, the question is do I replace the fork seals at he same time or do I leave them alone as they are not leaking ?

If I should change them do you need the correct tool for installing them or can you do them without if you are careful, done plenty of seals on ordinary forks without the correct tool in the past just don't want to bugger up a pair of Ohlins !

..............cause spoonz would take the piss

No special tools needed, i pushed mine in with a large socket but they weren't a particularly tight fit anyway.

Once the circlip was out mine came out failry easily and went in with the socket. The lastest Ohlins ones are triple lipped, my original single lip went mid tour in Spain at 5k (misting on left leg which gradually got worse)
Keep the same dust seals. i think i have some spare dust seals if yours are cream crackered as i didn't replace them when i did the main seals.

Forks done ! no probs easier than doing conventional forks. Pushed the new seals in by hand  using the old seal to press down on job jobbed.
