Any tips on changing fork seals on 2015 r1200r lc with esa. Dealer quoted £390 !! Is it possible for diy or is it Dealer only?

According to the BMW Reprom, there are some special pre-tensioning tools required to strip the innards out of the fork leg before you can get to remove the oil seal. unless you have good facilities to fabricate something, I wouldn't be trying it without the tools.
