I had a seal go on my 05 WR 450 after about 400 miles. After installing new seals on both forks AND installing Dirt Skins, no problems 3 years and 2000 miles later. I like the dirt skins with the velcro; they go on and off easily for washing.... which is key to long seal life. Another trick is to pack water-proof grease under the dust seal (between the dust seal and the actual fork oil seal). This traps any debris and keeps it from wrecking the oil seal. You also need to wash your bike regularly..... atleast after every other ride, and after EVERY mud or rain ride; dried mud, sand, silt and dust on the lower fork tubes will get under the dust seal and wreck the oil seal.
