Fork seal leak?

I get a very, very light film of oil on one of my fork legs when the forks are compressed. However, it does not feel wet at all. If I rub my finger on the fork leg, I can't feel the film, but I can see it. Is it ok to ride for now or should I get it fixed right away? Is there anything I can do to stop this from getting worse?

Hmm there's alot of variables, but if it gets worse I would stick new seals in there. Don't get them from the dealership or you'll be paying out the azz, parts unlimited will have them cheaper (around $60 a set)

My neibhor will put them on for $150 if you ride the bike over.

Pm me if your interested
