Ive seen people with zip ties on their bike while riding and im worried it could scratch up my stanchion pretty good especially when sand gets into it and could cause terrible grinding. Am I correct or is there no harm in leaving the zip tie on it?

I leave mine on. It pretty much just stays up at the top of the stanchion where the travel maxes out, so it isn't moving a lot. If you are super worried, you can replace it with a rubber oring whenever you do your fork maintenance.

If you do remove it, move it to the top before cutting it off...just in case you nick the stanchion, you'll do it somewhere your seals seldom reach.
