A leaking front fork means a fork seal is shot, most probably. I recently did this job myself while also replacing the fork springs with hyperpro's. I wouldn't have attempted it without the service manual. I bought mine on ebay a few years back. You might check there. There are other online sources which typically cost quite a bit more.

When you get to the part where you need to seat the new seals, all you need as a "special tool" is a short (maybe 10" or so) length of standard 1 1/2" pvc pipe, and a rubber mallet. The pipe will fit snugly over the inner tube and sit nicely on top of the new seal. Then you tap the seal down easily by hitting the top of the pipe with the mallet until it reveals the groove on the inside of the tube where the round-ish metal ring/seal holder will sit.

All this will make sense when you've taken the thing apart according to the manual, and are putting it back together.

Since your scoot is now "old", and if you can afford it, you might consider replacing the fork springs with hyperpro progressive springs.
They're also available online for about $175 including shipping.

Good luck.
