Leaky fork seals

Just as a heads up, try cleaning the seals with a piece of 35mm film or there is a company that makes a tool for cleaning them out.
Pop the dust seal up and slide the film in between the slider and the oil seal, i cut a curve into the film so it pulls the dirt up as it is slid around, I have been doing this for years on my dirt bikes and when my Wee fork started leaking I tried it and it worked.
