check no rust spots on forks,
that can wear a groove in seal and create a leak.
otherwise incorrectly fitted or manufacturing fault with seal

bushings were in good nick - still had all the coating on them. he couldnt see any marks on the chrome and didnt seem bent. so we replaced seals with OEM - didnt use OEM last time - and fresh oil.

fingers crossed this fixed the prob for good!

My mate had the same problem with a Yamaha, replaced the seals twice and they failed almost straight away. Then he went for genuine Yamaha seals (first two sets were patened parts) and no more problems. Fingers crossed you will find the same.
