I'll be checking my stanchions for any deep scratches and polishing if needed.

I'm also not a fan of the green color
I'm hoping they last. I did replace the bushings as well so that should help with the longevity of the seals. I almost reused the black wipers, but opted for the new SKF ones. Also, my bike only has 8,800 miles on it so the stanchions were in perfect condition which should help with seal life.
