The fork seal needs replaced. Might as well change both while you're at it. Motorcycles unlimited or house of paint. Very reputable shops and will take good care of you.

If you've never done it before I would definitely take it to a shop. Unless you're a handy mechanic with lots of tools it would be hard to do in the garage.

Got mine done on my ducati that had been sitting for a long time for about $170.

Make sure to get it done quick before it leaks too much on your brakes!

Also note that if any oil dripped onto your rotor and got into your pads, your pads are pretty much toasted. You'll be able to feel a difference in stopping power. If so, go ahead and replace the pads while your at it.

It seems daunting if you have never done it yourself, but it is actually very easy. A stand is the most expensive tool you will need. If you have that and some wrenches you should be good to go. Plenty of good youtube videos on it. Since doing it once I can now get a cartridge type fork seal done in two beers.

Also, if it leaks enough, it will slither on down to your front tire. That combined with a nice handfull of the front brakes, and you may even hit some more fluids on the ground like water/oil That's when the ice cream begins to turn to .
