Congratulations, Jeff!! You posted up the very first link that is actually useful, AND I was going to suggest the very same thing.
OP I actually went cheap and cut a tool out of a Chinese food container in the shape of the Seal Pro tool. Yeah they're $5 at Cycle Gear, but I was lazy and didn't feel like making the trip. Besides, the tool was essentially free to make since I took the lid froma dude at work after he finished his lunch.
I used my tool to clean the seal out on my old R6 and it worked just as shown. I had to take the bike for a ride to get the seal to reseat though. So get or make a tool, clean out the seal, then go for a ride (take a rag with you). Stop periodically to wipe the fork clean again, then continue on. If the seal reseats and there's no signs of anymore leaking, you'll need to flush and replace the fluid because I guarantee the fluid is dirty.
On the other hand my VTX had a leak and my tool failed to do the trick, so really it's a hit or miss thing. The seal on my VTX was stupid easy to replace though, so I went ahead and knocked it out (and I have experience doing this crap). Good luck.
