2009 CRF450r KYB Factory Connection Suspension Front Fork Rebuild

Ive got an 09 CRF450r that has been set up by Factory Connection and my fork seals just started leaking. My question is, am I better off running KYB Service kit, or to run OEM Honda seals and bushings? Is there much difference? And also, is Honda fork oil my best bet, or something else? Thanks, Jon.

Not sure that the above post helped me much... Any feedback from anyone else?

He said,, SKF fork seals(the best),Honda OEM bushings (if needed) and use KYB,SHOWA or Maxima fork fluid.Any one of these fluids are good.

KYB's best fork seal for the 48mm fork is PN 110014800302. It's a third the price of SKF's and is quite reliable if the dust seals are in good condition and you keep the seals clean. OTOH, the SKF seal kit comes with new dust seals that are a significant upgrade in their own right.
