Well, I think I know what the problem is. Unfortunately, I had to take my whole $#*!ing front end apart to do it.
There appears to be a teflon-like ring at the top of the fork that must keep the covers from scratching the lower forks such as happened with me. Kawi p/n is 13070-0017: Guide, Case. My one is thinner than the other, so that must be the culprit.
The cover itself just has a washer and rubber bushing to cushion it against a locking ring on the fork rod. The RH one was quite snug to the fork clamp, but there was some play on on the LH one that likely contributed as well. I'll try to get things back together and perhaps snug that connection up a touch as well.
