4TH after every ride loosen the bleed valve on top of your shock and vent the build up pressure. I learn this form a YAMAHA tech.
If you don't have the time or $$$ to buy new seals get a business card or a piece of 8mm film. Pull down your dust covers and run the film in between the seal and the fork to get the dirt out. I think this covers everything.. Guys, if I missed something let him know.

696 is on the right track. Either have your dealer do it for free, or take that film and get in there to remove the gunk. Vaseline works good to seal out the muck. Now cover the area if possible with guards, pantyhose, etc to keep the crap out.

Pack some grease between the seal and the dust seal and it will help stop it from leaking again.the grease keeps more dirt from makeing it to the seal.I had a lot of trouble with mine leaking until I learned this trick,haven't had any more trouble since.

Comments Mook? How tight do they fit around the forks? How do they work better than the stock wipers?
