keeps fork oil in front forks. they can be blown from landing wheelies too hard or grit can make its way up between seal and tube, preventing a good seal with fork tube.
when you start seeing oil on your forks and a little on the ground under that area best to get it fixed because the oil will make its way back to the brake pads ruining them and stopping power

I need to do this on my bike as well, I already have the seals, but I would like to do this myself. I like to learn how to do things myself rather than pay for it. I have already had to replace the motor in my bike, so I figured this shouldn't be too hard, lol.
Anybody willing to show/tell me how to do this?

One of the critical things about doing seals is having the right sized seal drivers to make sure they seat correctly. Not an expensive tool, but critical to proper sealing. The other pain in the is suspending the bike with the forks removed since a traditional stand wont hold it because it uses the fork legs to lift it. I generally strap a tow strap around the frame and suspend the bike from the ceiling.
Oh and Tomball Kawasaki its a wonder they are still in business.

Probably, it's my first run at re-assembly and it'll be my second dis-assembly. :-)
