    What size fork seal driver is used to do 2009+ VMax fork seals? Mine are not leaking but I figured it would be good to have the fork seal driver handy eventually. Are there any other special tools needed to make the job easier? I have chased down every possible angle or word phrase that I could think and only found one post who even mentions needing fork seals replaced. Having owned a 1st Gen and a bunch of FJs and an FJR and rebuilt forks, it is starting to seem like the 2nd Gens never leak. Hmmmmm. Seems weird.

    Did you need any other tools? What did you use for a seal driver? Is it a 52 mm?
