fork seals

Hello everyone I have browsed this section but I don't think I found what I was looking for. my 86 has air forks in the front but the fork seals are leaking. now with that said does this system up front with the air take special seals because of air or are they regular seals and can this be done at home with basic tools thanks everyone hope you all are enjoying riding

Fairly simple job. Write up how to right here:

Jacking the bike up and removing the forks takes more time than the seal replacement.

I'll be doing this in a couple days when my seals get here

Edit: spiritwalker, just a friendly reminder - try and search the forums first for the information you seek. If you can't find it manually, go to Google and type "site:vn750.com (search term without parentheses)"
