Fork Seals frequent leaks
Ever since I got this bike I've been having my fork seals leak after a relatively short time after replacement - on average a year or even less, with an average mileage of 5ooo miles inbetween leaks. So far I've changed them about three times, since December 2015. They don't leak both at the same time of course, I just replace both of them whenever one of them leaks.
Is this the same for you guys?
Those of you who manage higher mileage, what seals do you use?
Also, someone told me of a tool that dirtbike riders use that cleans internally the dust seals and this -supposedly- helps prolong the longevity of the oil seals. Is there such a tool for us street guys?
Thanks in advance for any answers.
