Awright now!! Enough whining!! Ya wanna play ya gotta pay!! It’s been a tough riding season with the wet/muddy conditions, but you can help yourself with a seal saver scraper to keep your seal wipers and seals cleaned out. You can make your own by cutting a plastic soap bottle into curved shape and carefully inserting it under fork wiper and flush the crud and mud with WD40 or CRC556 with spray tube sprayed into opening created by scraper. You will find the purpose made scrapers are a bit safer as the homemade ones sharp edge can damage seal lip. This should become a regular post ride service job for muddy riding conditions. I’m sending you a PM with name of a great suspension guy.

To replace fork seals is not rocket science. You will find many good videos of how to do it on You Tube. There are also "seal savers" you can buy and fit on your forks that keep most of the dirt away from them.
