So I finished up my swingarm swap and get one ride in only to find that, I believe, my GSXR forks have a leak. The left side has a good amount of oil on the fork tube and I saw more oil all the way down to the end of the wheel axle. Argh

1 step forward 2 steps back. Argh!

Bummer, man! At least it's just a leaky seal, that's a much smaller job than a swingarm swap. And the parts are cheap!

Good luck getting the leak fixed. :(

yeah was figuring I'd have to do both. Just makes sense since I'm already there!!

At least you dont have the same issue as my YZF. Has a micron deep flake in the chrome on the left side and causes the seal to leak after a year - year and a half. Finally found a place that sells replacement stantions. Both sets of forks have the same issue. Something about the chroming process KYB used on the sliders for these bikes back then.
