Hey guys,

I am about to attempt my first fork seal job on my WR. Any tips, and possibly a procedure for just replacing the oil and dust seals? Or do I need to replace anything else too. The manual says to replace several parts when rebuilding, but I only have about 20 hours on this bike so I don't think anything is worn out. Just got a little harsh on the forks and blew out the right seal. The left seal was soon to follow as I did not can the whole weekend, and rode with just the left fork for a while. Anyway, any advice and/or tips will be appreciated. Thanks,

I'd also check and see if you have a nick in the lower leg. I had a very small one and it trashed the seal.
