Re: 95' forks on a 99'
Perhaps you should learn not to put them down so hard then :-)
You should be able to do thousands of wheelies without blowing the seals.
If you go to inverts you'll need to replace the clamps and clip-ons as well at least.
By far the simplest swap is doing a complete front end - forks, clamps, wheel, discs, axle, guard, clip-ons and calipers.
Do you only have F3 forks or is the whole front end off an F3?
