My point is not to discredit but to inform.  Honda provides complete parts breakdown and many sites offer credible diy proceedures that can save your parts and possibly your life.  Making another repair video would be like reinventing the light bulb.  There just isnt a need to.

+Matthew Brenengen anyone trying this technique of yours will most likely ruin their forks or at least prevent them from ever sealing again.  Believe it or not there are very good reasons for following proper proceedure and absolutely no excuse for not.  It is very simple, straightforward, and easy to do.  There are several "correct" ways to replace honda seals and I prefer the one where you don't take the tubes off the bike.  You simply remove the lower cylinders.  Unless you are renewing the inner pistons and rings there is no need to remove the forks completely.  For those not experienced in fork seal renewal to follow your video, no matter how well intentioned, it will be a nightmare.  You are clearly NOT a motorcycle mechanic so why pretend you are?  Swallow your pride and learn.  The information is free and readily available.  I do commend your "tackle any problem" spirit though and I mean you no offense, but seriously... doing your front forks right is vitally important.

This is utterly stupid and uninformed.  Scratching your fork tubes or damaging the bottom cylinders renders the forks useless. It costs, on average, 600.00 usd plus to replace them.  Why would you do this?  It is seriously easy to replace the seals, bushings, and sleeves on honda forks without even removing the tubes from the bike if you jack the front wheel off the ground, remove it, take off the allen head bolt securing the top to the bottom of the cylinder then sharply pulling the cylinder off the inner tube.  I strongly suggest one refer to the repair manual instead of this video.

+Matthew Brenengen my quote was for new forks not used parts and there is nothing wrong with used hard parts as long as they are within specifications

I need to add...please take the top cap off the forks before removing the bottom cylinders from the tubes and ... do one at a time.  I must remember not to assume someone would think of this without being  told.  You can manipulate a light bike's fork springs really easily, but heavier bikes require a bit of care and strength to compress the springs enough to reinstall the threaded caps.  OH, lest I forget... if these are air assisted forks BLEED THE AIR OUT FIRST!!!
