Not having seals on hand doesn't mean new forks, it simply means there aren't seals on hand. They may have a superseded seal number and no stock on the new ones. As far as the install tool goes... a 45mm seal driver works on basically any 45mm fork. You can go on eBay and pick up a generic driver 45mm driver. I think your dealer is feeding you BS.
This riddle is easily solved.
A question for anyone with a 2013 F800gs: Does you front suspension suck? If so they are still using the Marzocchi sealed 45mm forks.
I doubt BMW would change from one shitty part to another shitty part. I expect if they did change they would have gone to an adjustable fork this time. I also expect if they changed that they would make a point of advertising that fact.
Just my thoughts though.
