Are you sure its a leak from the compression adjustment because its very rare and you have both leaking - never seen that one before in the 13 years ive been here.

It may be the fork seals leaking and you are just seeing it drip off the compression adjusters? i would wash off the fork legs and double check your diagnostic.

If its the fork seals there may be a solution before you go stripping the forks down come back and let us know.
