I will assume you have the old 1000 and I will also assume they are like most bikes.
When you look at the top of the lower fork tube you will see a seal, that is only a dust seal, put a small screwdriver between the seal and the lower fork tube then flip the seal up and out of the lower tube & slide it up the upper tube.
Now look in the gap you have created and you will see the oil seal.
Cut a strip of scourer and put it in that gap, now push the dust seal back into place and you are done.

Ridding a motorcycle keeps things in balance.
At the end of each trail and at the end of each day history is made.
