Right fork seal. Hopefully its just dirt under it. I'm about to pull the front end apart and install my high fender, etc so I'll take a look.

I noticed that too. MUCH faster to open a bottle than getting the KTM tool kit out.

Did you set the fork height, or the previous owner? (forks look high, ie front low).
