I was riding the other night and noticed that my rear shock no longer shocked. When you push it down the first few inches it bounces right back up like the shock wasn't working. Does anyone know what this is from? Does it need to be recharged and oil changed? I just now noticed because I havent jumped it in months due to the snow.

Sounds to me like either your rebound adjuster has been backed too far out or the shock needs serviced. The shock seal pack may be bad allowing the oil to leak out. This in turn usually leads to the shock bladder blowing out. Bent shims could be the cause, Contamination in the shims, etc. If the adjuster is set properly, might be time to send it out for some servicing,
