    toor, I would think if the bushings in the fork tubes were bad, you would see your seal life evaporate in a matter of weeks, not to mention it would damage the inner fork tubes, and produce scratches that are visible. I've seen several bad bushings over the years. but never on a bike that has had the fork oil changed out regularly. Unless of course a low mile bike has a mis-alignment problem, or fork damage from a lay down that cannot be seen by the naked eye...do you have any visible scratches on the fork shafts ??

    Not sure Tour 99? I'm thinking just clean, repack and adjust.
