Rear shock leaking

Hi, a couple of days ago i friend noticed that my rear shock is leaking.
It had oil on the shock stem

What can i do?Is there a way to fix it or i have to be looking for a new one?

Not worth your time or money to have that OEM shock rebuilt..... there is no pressure port, you have to drill the body, disassemble, install a schrader valve, then repair the leak (new seal at least).. all for a OEM chunk of not great shock.

Talk to Jamie here on the list and ask about a custom modified shock...

Absolutely agree with E! If you can't afford that, jump on ebay and make someone an offer.

Cheap way is an ebay stocker. I got one from Jamie and really like it. If you can swing it get one from him.

Be REAL careful riding around on a bike with a blown shock. It can get real unstable at exactly the wrong times.
