Default SKF fork seals std or hd?

My KYB SSS oe fork seals need replacing and I want to try the green SKF seals but what ones do most people like better? The standard or heavy duty version? Thanks!

The best combo is skf hd dust seals with kyb seals, I've got the hd dust seals and skf seals (it's the dust seal that is twin lipped in the skf hd kit) but kyb seals feel slicker. The marzochhi seals are made by the same company as the kyb seals but are rubbish in comparison.

Performance to price, value lies with the KYB seals. I do the same as Simmo. Spend up front for a set of SKF and then go to KYB seals once the SKF leak. I find the KYB much more resilient too.

Thanks guys, so reuse the SKF dust seals with new OE KYB seals down the road.
