I was just simply shifting from first to second as I was rapidly accelerating, as I normally do, but for some reason got a vicious tank slap from a tiny front wheel hop almost causing me to lose it. I've never had this happen to me before. Apparantly I blew the left fork seal in the ordeal. Is blowing the fork seals a common occurance during a tank slap? I'm not looking forward to replacing it...I know they can be a pain in the arse.

No blowing a fork seal isn't that common that I know of, And I've had a few tank slappers in my day. Usually blown fork seals are from coming down hard in whelies or if you get a nick in the fork shaft.
