One tip I've heard of for getting fork seals out requires a bolted down work bench and a length of 2X4.
Keep the caps on but remove any circlips seal retainers etc, then put the end of 2X4 under the edge of the bench, with the fork standing on end wrap a rag securely around the fork seal, now pump the 2X4 up and down on the fork. The pressure inside the fork will usually pop the seal right out. You can put the fork in a bucket to limit the mess.
Best of all you don't damage the top of the fork lower trying to dig out the seal.
Should be free, most guys have a work bench, a 2X4, a rag and a bucket kicking aroung the shop or garage.
