Can heat cause fork seal leak?

Recommended Posts

I have 2 dirt bikes ('03 RM125 and '06 YZ250F). I store both of them in a 5x8 enclosed trailer. The trailer has no roof vent. 2 weeks ago I pulled out my YZ250F, and noticed both forks were seriously covered with fork oil. Last week I pulled out the RM125 (with new fork seals as of this Spring) and noticed a lot of fork oil on one of the fork tubes. Is this just bad luck that both bikes are in need of seals, or could there be other factors (heat in the trailer, etc.). I never strap the bike down real hard in the trailer.

Any ideas?
