Any fluid leaking?

Doesn't cost too much to have it serviced depending on what parts need to be changed. Mine was $100.

As MXJOSH said fluid leak is a good indicator and I did have a major leak large puddle on the floor of my trailer...here is the previous post with a video of what my bike was doing.

I am sending my shock out to get a revalve/rebuild and a new spring....the spring is 100 bucks and the rest is 200...but it will be set up for me...I figured if I was spending the money I might as well get it done right.

That may also be a sign that your compression/rebound are way to fast. Have you plyed with the clickers at all?

Mine did this as well when I went too long in between fluid changes. Actually rode with the stock fluid for 3yrs. Performance in the whoops was greatly diminished. The rear end would kick all over the place. Having the fluid changed fixed it. Fluid only lasts so long.
