Ihvrc,
Will only work to remove an embedded particle thats between dust and possibly held in the oil seal.
I bought one but my fork seals were too damaged by insect wings that hardened into razors before I cleaned them off.
The slight weep shouldn't fool you that alot of crude is going the other way into the fluid during your ride and air contamination while resting that will quickly degrade the remaining fluid and accelerate internals wear. Do the seal/fluid changeout now. Dirt bike seal crud usually has less abrasives than street debris so saving a seal is more likely.
