I"ll probably catch it for this but I just ordered some from a vendor on eBay named Peak Moto. Under $30 for new seals and dust covers - shipped

Plus they have a 30 day money back guarantee and have a stellar seller history

Hey William86,

A leaking fork can be caused from a dead dryed bug, that hit the fork tube, if it was not cleaned off right away, it will cause your fork Oil seal to have a leak, if it got past your dust seal, that could happen easily.

I check my bike after each ride, and clean and wipe down my fork tubes.

a Minor fix is to check your fork tubes to see if any debris is in or around the fork seal, pull up both of the top dust seals, then look down in at the oil seal to see if any debris is in the seal or under it, causing the leak, this may save you from a tare down.

I get my OEM stuff from Bike Bandit, they are in so. California,

I just replaced GL1200, GL1100 & GL1000 front fork Seals & Slider Bushings.

When i did mine i use only Synthetic oil, whether it be Fork oil or ATF.

I am not sure, but, since you are located more in the central southern USA, maybe someone else can chime in that is in the Texas area.

There is a tool that I saw that is suposed to clean out the debris on the seals and help stop the leaks. It is made by Motion Pro which has a good reputation. It can be had for around $5.00 I can't see how you could go wrong even if it doesn't work but it would be nice to see someone use it and give a review.....

yes i know he is not in Texas, he is in Tampico Mexico.

But the closest place to him in the USA, for him to get parts would be probably Texas.

I just got a set of these but haven't tried it out on my leaky right tube yet. Just replaced both with new OEM last year so I hope the little tool works. Gonna give it a try this weekend so I will post back with results.

im not on texas but i get my stuff shipped to a friends house there, the big deal with bikebandit is that they wont tell you if they have the parts ready to ship unless you give them your credit card number and charge for the item.

I too put in OEM Honda seals and 60,000km later no sign of leakage.
Sometimes the higher price ends up not that high.

I went with an after market seal set was $40.00. Had to buy OEM seals and rebuild them again. NOT FUN. Use OEM seals it will save you in the long run. The shop where I bought the after market seals refunded my money was sorry his seals didn't work.
I paid $76.00 for the seals and $10.00 for the oil from Honda.
