Hey guys just got on my bike for the first time since the Soboba, I found that my rear suspension is locked up. I remove the lower linkage to see if linkage is binding. Its good. What I need to know if anybody has had their rear shock ever lock up? I've loosend up the spring completely and still no movement.
I'm taking the shock off and going to fineline to get it rebuilt, just wondering if anybody has run into this.
Bike is a 06YZ450F. Thanks, and Happy Easter.

It's rare, apparently, and mostly on older units. I've never seen it happen.
