Dont worry about them. Keep the stanchions wiped down and clean, also around the seals.. You could put some Slick Honey on stanchions and compress fork to work it in every so often. Wipe off after applying. Buy a new one after this one is toast.

Several shops in town sell them. You also went right by another on your way to Story on 135, Trail Time Tack?,small store with supplies and horses hangin out. Also at Stonehead you can turn left to PikesPeak and go to Crouch's market. Story Inn has never been the go to on passes, probably more their lack of effort than the NFS.
If you use this syringe to measure accurately, how do you know how much is already in fork or how much has been lost? Most fork manufactures list to the milliliter on volume to be added to the spring side and dampener side. Also they usually spec 2 different weight oils to be used and it's very rarely 20wt. No wonder you burn up forks prematurely. Most manuf. state 100 hours useage between oil and seal intervals. Most riders never adhere to this interval and wear out bushings and stachions.
Been riding in Sedona since "97". Man has it changed over the years,for the better as far mtb goes. TD left Moab and moved on over to Sedona and has added an amazing amount of new singletrack over the past few years. Alot of it is considered intermediate to advanced. TD has been fined for his unapproved trail building, but he has given the area a boost in mtb tourism. You used to be able to ride most all the trails there in week, but no way now. Given your only gonna ride one day, you can't possibly scratch the surface. Go to MtnBike Heaven in W Sedona or the new Bike and Bean location in OakCreek and get the lowdown. Hopefully you have ridden in the desert previously and can ride slickrock and broken sheets of sandstone. I'll suggest the following;
Broken Arrow,Submarine Rock, Llama Loop, Templeton, Baldwin and back. If you don't have enough time to do a complete out and back, there are several short cuts you could take. Don't forget to take take a flop off the rope swing at Budda Beach.
