How do you know when....

Recommended Posts

I was just noticing that my shock bottoms out a little easier than it used to.

(stock w/applied spring) So I was wondering how you can tell if your shock is blown?

im not positive but it could be when your forks are leaking badly.....but that could also just be a blown seal im not positive

Stock forks dont have oil in them so they cant leak. lol

If you shock is blown oil will be coming out of the seals and it wont have any dampening. How long have you had the bike, and how long has it had the HD spring?

The stock shock seems to go out pretty easy with a heavy rider.

sorry to say but eventually itll blow!

It hasn't had the HD spring very long, but It is an 02'. There isn't any oil leaking out....yet 😢 I have over jumped(5' to flat ground) quite a few times on the first try of a new jump but that's about it. I will probably get a new shock whether It's blown or not. Thanks
