Front Fork Problems on YZ250F 2003

Has anybody experienced the fork leaking from above the seal where fork tube is pressed in to aluminum housing?

Mine is and I'm now having arguments with Yamaha, thorugh my dealr, to get a new fork.

Like a big dummy, I forgot to tighten down my dipstick, and it leaked oil all over the left fork above the seal. It looked exactly like it was a blown seal but leaking upwards instead of down.

Maybe if your a lucky dummy like me? :)

I make a point of checking all items before riding. But I'll look tonight to see if this could be the cause.
