It is true that with OEM style seals you will need to clean them with a seal mate, business card or film negative. But keep this in mind. You fork oil is already dirty and you most likely have water in your forks along with dirt. So cleaning the seals just keeps pushing the dirt back into the oil. This is what is called "Jimmy Rigging". Just think, if you had a product in your forks the first time or next time, you would not have to worry about "Jimmy Rigging" any longer.
You see, the Synergy Seals setup is pretty savy. Our design is a single tall lip oil seal, then we have a pre-wiper that physically scraps and pushes dirt, water, dust, silt away from the seal. Then we have a backup ring which acts as the fork tubes pivot during the forks deflection and most importantly, keeps the oil seal and pre-wiper axially straight.
Again, by reading this and reading other riders that use our seals, you can tell right away that we are the only company in the world doing the right thing for riders and the only company in the world with this design and material. EVERYTHING is propriotory and we license to no one.

I had a 2002 duke II with only 750 miles (as of 2 months ago).
one fork seal leaks oil when it's parked. Once I ride the bike it'll stop leaking for a couple days.
a friend told me the seal may have "shrunk" from lack of usage. he told me to spray WD-40 at the rubber seal so it swells. will this work?
I've used a business card to clean the seal.

Pity you can't simply ride more...
