Steve, you say that if the seal was damaged it would continue to leak. That's what I thought, too. I just thought it was strange that I saw some oil right after the impact but now, rather than getting worse, it's actually getting better. Perhaps there is some oil on the dust seal and it is gradually smearing off, explaining why the problem seems to be getting better, not worse? The total amount of oil lost is VERY small, probably not even measurable.
I suppose it would be safe to continue to ride for a while to see if it clears itself up or continues to leak, am I right?
Many thanks to everyone for their help!
