Default Fork Seals for '13 XC300

It looks like I'm on my own, I've asked several local shops and none of them want to replace my fork seals... It looks like parts and tools are about the same price as an hour or two of shop labor, so I'm gonna take the plunge.

It looks like I have 48mm Marzocchi forks (pics attached), If this is correct, can I order any seals for 48mm Marzocchi forks? What about rings? Are they bike specific or fork specific? If you have known part numbers that work, or can recommend a quality set of seals I'd appreciate it.

Can anyone recommend a good ring driver tool? My R6 fork seals just started weeping too, and If I can buy 1 tool that does both bikes then it's worth the cost. I haven't replaced fork seals before, but I'm pretty handy and work well with diagrams and youtube vids. If I can't fix it, I'll fix it so no one can!

So far, this video seems to be the closest to what my forks look like. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=HEhogjOplYM

Motion Pro makes an excellent seal driver.

I use the SKF fork seals.

Thank you both for the info and links. I have a friend who has a lot more experience with dirt bikes than I, and he's willing to come help. Neither of us have done fork seals before, but it doesn't look too hard. Now to get the parts shipped before my next day off...

Based on my research I'm going to try the SKF seals. I noticed the part number is slightly different for the '11-'14 EC250 (KITG-48M) vs the '11-'14 EC300 (KITG-48M-B1). Any idea what the B1 means, and if there is a difference? My gut says to go with the B1 part since it's for the 300.
