I too have been looking at fork seals and need some guidance. I see seals for my 1100 for $9 per set and right next to them "Leak Proof" seals for $32 per set. I think the seals are available OEM as well. I am looking for the best bang for the buck that preforms good and won't leak for a long time. Which ones fit that criteria?

The consensus is that the OEM seals are about the best, and last longest. Most seals are actually made by the same company except for a couple like triple lip seals or the thicker ones that use thinner washers. All Balls are supposed to be pretty good. If the OEM are a reasonable price, why not just get them.
It ain't about the destination - it's all about the journey
Just installed the All Balls seal kit today so time will tell, I paid around $22 on eBay which included dust caps. Of course the OEMs by Honda are proven good, so either option should be good.
