They'll be 48mm Sachs forks.

Typical OC fork. Scary in them. You will need a 48mm seal driver to get the new seals in. The dust seals are TIGHT! you'll have fun getting them out.

ALSO! More than one of us on here has managed to cross thread the rebound clicker in the damper rod upon reassembly. Do a search for the correct method (basically take the clicker out of the cap first, thread it into the damper tube, then put the cap over the top).

KYB 48mm bushing and seal kit can be had for around $50 and includes everything that will fit perfectly! 09 CRF450R (from memory)

Only once, but hide the women, children, and small animals while you're at it!

I might be tempted to go with SKFs on the first go round. Bushings are notoriously sloppy feeling when the forks are fully extended (bike on a crate).
Use a heat gun to relieve the seal groove before attempting to pull the oil seals, and do be careful on the rebound adjuster/rod removal and re-installation.
