Recently had a left fork seal leak, appears the seal saver/film technique worked and the leak has stopped. Unfortunately I think the left brake pads may have been contaminated (haven't disassembled yet). Question is, is there any way to DE-contaminate/clean the pads? Also, if I end up replacing them, is it better to replace both sets so they wear evenly? They appear to have some service left on them. Thanks for any advice!

No.
Yes.

If they're oil soaked, they're junk. Replace both sets. EBC-HH or Galfer-HH are favorites.

Discard Contaminated Brake Pads right away,

PT Rider is 100% right on this, Once get fork Oil Brake Fluid, or mistakenly spray the brake pads with Brake Cleaner they are contaminate and it is a real mistake to ride on them after that,

Replace the pair and be happy, Well worth it for your safety and piece of mind,

Let me know if I can help you out,

Enjoy the ride, and best regards,
Blair

Thanks PTrider! Thats what I needed to know, gonna do this tomorrow!

Let's do a ride in your area some day. Plan the start to match the timing of the Keystone (now Coupeville) ferry. There are a goodly number of strom troopers in the north sound area. We can also consider a group for the On Street Course training in Everett.

By the way, Blair at svracingparts.com out of Blaine, is a great resource for some parts and great SV & DL knowledge.
