i was just wondering what the symptoms were of blown suspension and how can you tell?

it will act like a pogo stick
it will leak oil and spray it everywhere no matter what you do
it will feel like complete crap
you'll know...

i speak from expirience

if you fell like this then get it overhauled by a shop and you wont believe the difference, i was too cheap to get it done until i couldn't stand it then i was amazed at how much better it performed...200$ for fork+shock + parts(30$ seals etc)

but if your wondering my 07 susp is lightyears better than the bike i had these probs with
