Cut a playing card in half the long ways. Cut a notch where the red marking is. Pull the wiper up, and with the retaining ring in place, work the card into the seal and work it around the tube a few laps. This should clean out grit and stop your leak. I have one fork that gets it more than the other. Can't explain it, and I guess I don't need to as long as I have access to an Ace of Spades.
I've never seen a truly blown KLR fork seal. I have no doubt someone, somewhere, has blown one. You can ruin an anvil with enough effort. I have replaced a few that where nicked from large sand grains / trash. Transmission sealer will buy you some time if you have a nicked seal and need to ride on. Add it to the fork fluid.
Good luck with it.
