XR650L blown shock seal

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm new to the forum, came across it when looking for rear shock info.

I have an '08 xr650L with 3k miles and in excellent condition. It's never been ridden hard and last week I noticed an oil slick under the bike from the shock. The last ride prior was a mild street ride w/ no issues. In the 2 weeks between rides I did spray down and wipe some areas w/ CRC-336 and my question is - if this got onto and ran down the shock stem could it have eaten a seal or o-ring to cause the leakage ?

Again, the bike is immaculate and has never seen hard enough action to blow a shock. I'm about 185 lbs.

 

Based on this can anyone recommend a repair method ?

 

Thanks for any input.

 

Steve

A seal of 7 years old can go just based on time with no use
