How to replace fork seals for 05-06 RR's

looked around all the web and found a couple informative sites, but have yet to find a site that covers the write-up with the inverted forks (like the 05-06 not the 03-04) wanted to see if anyone has one for it, or an link to an equivalent (yam/suz/kaw) since they all have inverted forks now too.
