I have the 2016 victory cross country 8ball and it’s spring time and my fork seals are really leaking, unfortunately I can not find any to purchase. And so I would like some help... thanks

Are these fork seals difficult to change? I got mine done at the local Vic dealer last year and it cost me $500 CDN. My extended warranty would not cover it. Last time I get hooked into buying extended warranty.

I found it’s not terrible is you have the correct driver to places the seals correctly

I’m guessing the only place to get that is at the Vic/Indian dealer?

Look around for homemade seal drivers. On some bikes, you can use pieces of PVC pipe that have been cut to length and then cut in half to form two half hollow cylinders.

Ignore the fact that he's working on a sport bike, and pay attention to the fact that he's replacing fork seals on inverted forks :)

Did you try using a seal cleaning tool? Not saying you need to buy one of these, a playing card from a deck of cards can be cut to shape and used in the same fashion.
Might just need to clean out some grit/dirt/gunk built up on the seal. I have read here and elsewhere of guys who thought they had a bad seal and turned out just needed to clean up the seals a little. Just a thought.
A BTW, if they have been leaking heavily, you should probably still change the fluid just to be sure you have the correct amount in them.
