    Fork diameter

    I am going to be replacing my fork seals but don't have a digital caliper to measure them with so I can buy the correct seal driver. Does anyone know the outside diameter of the fork tubes? Shop here wants 220 to do it and I can buy the driver and OEM seals for under 100. Bike is 06 FZ6 (blue W/ black frame)

    The local shop charges me $20 (plus the cost of seals) for both seals. I bring the forks removed from bike, free of oil. Because of that I've never purchased a seal driver kit.
