I have one of the plastic seal mates, but could not find a way to work it around the plastic guard - any ideas ? I couldn't see a way to move this protector so I could get fully around the seal. This guard, is the black plastic shield that goes a third of the way around the fork leg where the upper and lower fork joins.
I used that tool for 2/3 of the fork up to both sides of the guard - it did appear to lessen the oil leaking, but a few days ago, I left my bike in the garage for 2 or three days and when I got to it again, there was an oil stain on the ground under the fork - about an inch in diameter - and not too much oil.
if I wipe the lower fork leg off and leave it over nite, there is a film of oil on it again the next morning.
I will replace the seals in 5 or 7 days, but cannot until then.
