Yes...worn bushings allow movement in the inner tube deforming the seal and allowing oil to seep.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

try letting the front down more softly when you've changed the bush !

I just noticed both my fork seals are weeping. I had the dealer order the parts and i'll bring them the forks when they come in. I'm thinking of going a little heavier weight on the fork oil. Mines a 2010 with 9,000 miles so I guess that isn't too bad.
