shock leaking

Recommended Posts

so the trusty xr may have had its first issue. i went out to the garage and saw a pool of oil under the bike, traced it down to the shock. seems a seal is leaking or something :thumbsup: . its dripping out of the top portion of the shock.

so is this just a simple shock service and replacing seals? not that i can do it, but just curious if it could be worse?

Sounds like it is just simply the seal. That can be replaced easily with a seal kit and then fresh oil and a recharge. It is not something most people do on their own, so I recommend taking it to a good shop with a suspension service tech. Not all Honda shops really have a tech that knows suspension. I take mine to a Yamaha shop because the tech there is a race tech suspension guru.
