1981 gl00 front fork size

I am rebuilding front forks. I have a motion pro fork seal driver 41mm and it's too big. What size are the front forks on this bike.
Thanks

Actually, I'm just going to use PVC pipe since these items are pricey and since I already splurged on one last year. Unfortunate that these aren't adjustable. I'm assuming the fork size is 39mm since the 40 is slightly too large.

Slice one side of the PVC pipe slip it over the fork and use that as the driver to install the seals, works very well, actually. Regards, Johnny
