You will have to remove the fork cap bolts for both fork tubes. They should be 24mm in size.
Remove them slowly and once removed the forks should compress.

Just make sure they compress slowly or you will have oil spurting out if the top of the fork tubes.
Once done screw everything back and torque to spec.

Hope this helps. 馃馃檹

Leave the forks alone and raise the bike. A floor jack or creative strap and ladder technique seen on here recently would work. Be safe and learn from this to think about things first next time. We don鈥檛 want it to injure you.
