Fork seal all fixed 50 all in with genuine seals.

Turned out to be a couple of rust/pit spots near the bottom of the fork.

I'm guessing when I hit the big dip at speed the fork compressed all the way down and the seal was nicked by it.

so I would check your forks for pitting and rust, my bike is a 15 plate mk3 and the pitting and rust has just started on it.
