the front fork of my 1997 7R are leaking "a lot" and I think by now they might be completely empty.
I found zx7r oil seals on ebay for about 10 dollars, but I have no trust in anything made in China :thumbdown,

..... just three Qs:king

1- where can I order original (or good quality) seals.
2- is there a chance that I might damage the front suspension by riding it without suspension oil.:headscratch.?
3- how often these seals leak and need changing

I personally have had no luck with the OEM seals. I used to have to replace them every season (due to leaking) and then I installed RaceTech seals and bushings. I have not had them leak since (3 seasons). Just my experience. If they run dry (not likely) they would probably work like crap and cause a crash. As for how often to replace, I would only replace them if they were leaking (as mine usually were). Otherwise, no reason to fix what isn't broke.
