Use OEM seals.
Some have used Allballs seals, did not last long.
Below each thread is "Recommended Reading", sometimes good info can be found.
There is also the advanced search at the top near the avatar,
but my best search is Google "vtxoa: allballs seals"
A picture of the search word(s) used and result.

Garter spring in the seal faces the oil.

I replaced my fork seals and bushings with OEM replacement parts on 10/8/2018, still holding good. Had replaced the seals only ( not the bushings ) one year earlier with "Leakproof" brand seals, did not hold up. In all fairness, I probably should have replaced the bushings the first time and didn't, so wondering if that may have shortened the life of the "Leakproof" seals.
