Are you sure that you are replacing the seals correctly?

I've been riding Yamahas since 1998 and have yet to have a leaking fork seal. I would do what the other guy said and make sure the fork leg isn't damaged.

If they still continue to leak try replacing them with oem seals.My suspension guys says that they are the best ones made.Make sure to inspect fork tubes for damage and install a set of seal savers on your bike.
