Yeah, I think I'm calling BS on this one (not the OP's post; rather, the idea that the fork brace is causing fork seals to leak). It's one thing to make a claim that a fork brace is causing distortion of a fork tube, but it's another to prove it. And proving it should be relatively easy with a micrometer; if the fork tube was out of round where the brace was installed, it would be easy enough to confirm.
Fork seals are a wear item, and it's pretty difficult to say that a fork seal is worn prematurely. A fork seal might be leaking and not be worn out, and a couple sweeps with a seal saver could fix the seal. If you spend a lot of time in the dirt and dust and never clean the fork tubes, you might have a leaking seal that isn't actually worn out.
This sounds more to me like someone drawing a conclusion without any supportive evidence.
