I highly doubt it unless you know the service guy. Fork seals are like brake pads, they are considered "wear items", meaning that they are expected to need to be replaced. You can get some upgraded fork seals that can stand up to wheelies, but they won't react as nice over the bumps as a "standard" set of seals. If all you do is stunt I would go with those, but if you take it to the track also, then just get used to replacing them with standard quality units.
thnx thats just what i needed to hear
If you take the fork off and bring them to the shop it should be around 2 hours of shop time. If you bring the bike in, around 3-3.5h (multiply by hour rate $)
Or you can do it yourself. You will need a few simple tools and a seal driver that can be made from a pipe.
