So got back from a great ride and was putting the bike away, noticed that there is a ring of oil on the base of my monoshock, not quite at the base, maybe a 1/4 in. from the bottom of the shaft. Far as I can tell its oil, shouldn't be that way correct?
This is my second rear shock on this bike. It is adjusted as per the aggressive suspension setting on this site. I bought this specific shock from a fellow badwebber, who I believe informed me he'd removed the shock after switching to a low shock. I know he told me it had less than 3,000 mi on it....want to say that it had less than 1,000 mi but can't clearly recall. I don't believe I have done anything out of the ordinary.
Does this mean I need to replace the shock again? And could there be something I am doing that is causing this?
