Left fork was leaking

It leaked once last year, then no more leaks. Now this year it has leaked on my garage floor twice, about 10 drops each time. So I tried the 35mm film under the seal trick.
Took it our for a 100 mile romp, and its still dry. Must have been some grit or a bug. I don't think it is out of oil because it still handles ok and is not making any noise. I am going to just ride it, then after freeze up I am going to see if Kawasaki will fix it under the good times extended warranty I purchased.

It is a 2008 with 11,000 miles

Did you pry off the dust seal to access the oil seal? It's good to pull down the dust seal to clean it and add some protective grease behind it once in a while.
