Ebay's littered with seal kits but I don't know about the quality. I bought mine off a Honda dealer £22 + postage. They've been on five days, no leaks as yet.

Check with your local dealer. You may find it not too bad if you take the forks into them. I was going to do my own but when I asked the dealer what he would charge me I thought that was not too bad. And they would stand behind the work if they leaked. They charged me 1.5 hour labor plus parts. If you still want to do the job yourself, I would suggest using OEM parts. Not that much price difference and you know what you are getting for quality.

Just my 2 cents worth.

You definitely want to go with OEM replacements, but don't go lining your local Honda stealer's pockets. There are plenty of places online, like http://cyclemax.com that have all OEM parts available at significantly lower prices than you'll pay at your local dealer.
