Wow, that is a mudfest!!! I'm surprised you could kickstand your bikes.

Bummer on the crack:foul: , hope it holds.

Rman....

bike has'nt got any problem with starting either...

few hours ago,my rear shock is peeing oil...:cheers:

shiit....my conclusion for the cause is maybe the sat mudfest,after the framebracket broke,all the load has been transfered to the rear shock...so today,must be my lucky day...:busted::thumbsup: :thumbsup:

you probably got mud/grit past the wiper seal and it is holding open the rod seal or worse it damaged the rod seal...if it were me I would rebuild it but if you dont want to, try pulling up the bump cap and getting any grit/grime out of the seal head...its worth a try.

thanks dude...i thk i'm gonna rebuilt it...all the oil is out...now no compression of the rear shock...:thumbsup:
