Fork Boots

I need to replace the fork boots on my 98. I am wondering what the correct or easiest procedure is for this? Also, would that be a good time to replace the fork oil, or does it not matter? Sorry I posted this in the wrong catagory.

Looks like is in right category to me. As for correct way, the only way is to remove each fork at a time and slide on the new boots. Now would be a good time to change the oil, especially if it is original 98 oil.

Looking to get back into KLR's sometime soon.
