Unhappy Leak in the Fork

So as I'm wrapping this up to get ready for the track day coming up next weekend I discover today that I have a leak in the fork... I ride an '12 1199s

Thanks to the workshop manual and my local mechanic I think we can tackle the task before we leave, however I have a few questions hopefully you guys can chime in.
1. I don't have a dealer in my area, where can I get some seals and bushings fast?
2. As most of the riding this season will be at the track, any pointers on oil levels in the forks or anything else we should watch out for when we get this handled?

Any wisdom is highly appreciated

Ferracci has them in stock according to their site. (215) 657-1276

If not try Ducati Of Omaha

Oil levels I have no clue about sorry

Appreciate it. Digging through the threads saw Kyle Racing carrying seals at a way lower price than anywhere I've seen!
Thanks from Styler and Sprinkles

Perhaps let us know part number, source you purchased and cost if you get a chance.
This sounds like something one should have in their spare-parts box before a track weekend.

I certainly will. I'm reaching out to Spiegler Performance, which is an Ohlins dealer here in Dayton OH, fairly local to me. I'll have a chat with them and see what their suggestions are. From my initial research, seal kit from Ducati runs about $123 (part number 349.2.131.1A) and equivalent Ohlins kit is about $60 (PN 04730-01, to be confirmed).

As far is oil is concerned, I've learned that you want to make sure you use the specific Ohlins oil for the forks, it runs at about $27/liter (PN H01313-01) but I'll reconfirm it all after I talk to their Ohlins tech tomorrow.
Thanks from Styler

Here's a link to the Ohlins catalog of suspension parts: https://spieglerusa.com/media/2015_C...Suspension.pdf

Haven't found 2016 one yet.

As per Íhlins Service Center:
Oil is at 220 mm on top of string and the plastic preload tube for forks FG9250 and FG9251

In case anybody is interested, my buddy at Íhlins Service Center is converting the electronically adjustable forks and rear shocks into manually adjustable for track/racing purposes. As he is located in Hungary, I doubt if that is very exciting for overseas people, but I can provide details if there is any interest.
Thanks from Styler, maslov and juaalton

Try Commonwealth Ducati in Louisville. They usually have a pretty good stock of parts on hand.

So picked up all my parts from Spiegler Performance Parts today. 2x seals, 2x dust seals and 2 liters of fork oil cost me $110. The ones they gave me are labeled for Yamaha, but they explained that the seals are identical for those forks. will get that done tomorrow and I'm off to the track for the first time this season!

Also, talked to Mike (I believe) at Kyle Racing, and he let me know that single best thing to do to improve the stock forks for the track is to upgrade the valves, which usually runs about $600 for both forks.
