Dl 650 vs DLA 650A

Can some please assist, I am getting ready to replace the front fork seals on my V-Storm DLA650A, I found the parts through a company called Air Balls for the entire seal and bushing kit, which will fit DL650 will the same seal kit work for the DL650A? I thought the A stood for ABS brakes, but was not sure if it would make a difference on the seal kit for the front forks. One more questions does anyone know of place to download a maintenance manual for the DL650. I can buy one on line, but was hoping to be able to download one to same time. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Same forks on all the 650's.......buy away. And ZERO discussion or sharing of pirated manuals here.

For those without a clue and no manual. Lot's of us have bought used, like new, manuals from fellow members here. Order up a Haynes too.
i used the Black Lab tutorial and realized I was repeating the same steps i used doing a '76 BMW R75/6 fork. There isn't much new science in forks.
The seal kits I got from the dealer and the fork oil was only 80-90 bucks. Not a wallet killer.

I would not use All Balls fork seals. I have read(not experienced) that most non OEM seals do not hold up, the difference in $ is peanuts to go OEM or SKF. You can most likely get them from Daugherty:
