Time for a rebuild with seals, dust wipers, bushings and oil.

Most likely you'll need to rebuild but not every time you see that will you have to. Sometimes you need to clean the seals. Moton pro makes a little peiece of plastic that you slide up there and use to clean it. It can also be done with something like 35mm film. Usually you have to pull the dust seal down, slide it in between the fork tube and fork seal, and then run it around the fork tube. Once you do that then you compress the forks a bunch of times and repeat until you see no more oil. I've had it take 10 or so times repeating that process before they seal. Then I'll take some lithium grease and put it in between the dust seal and the fork seal. You'll see a little of that when you push down on the forks again but that will slowly go away also.

Cleaning under the seals can usually buy you a little time, but from my experience with trying to that it's basically a band-aid fix. It definitely won't hurt to try though. Expect some oil to gush out when you are doing it though.
