Its your fork seals, the replacement is as per the thread that AJ posted. It happens to all bikes after a while, but the things that speed it up are not servicing the forks frequently enough and not cleaning the fork legs, especially on a RWU bike.

have a good read of that thread first.......and if you can, print it out and have it handy with you.
the one time ive done it took me half a day with help............
make sure you have all the tools as well.....no point taking forks off and then realising you dont have the bolt/allen key to take the cap off

err umm no.. :(
I only know how to change the oil in the forks and clean the spacer not taking apart and changing the seals sorry.

Just don't buy ebay seals apparently they leak or have a very short life?

Probably bodgy installation, but I wouldn't look past it. Biggest issue is buying quality components for the thing thats keeping you on a direct, controllable course while at 100km/h or more. I'd say people frequenting eBay for such parts may not always be looking for the item with the best quality.

That said, I personally wouldn't doubt a set of seals from eBay.

Instead of finding a 17mm allen key you can use a 17mm bolt or nut to fit it in the cap and then use a wrench to turn it.
