    Out on Sunday and noticed a stain on my rear swingarm, turns out the rear shock was leaking!!! 4500 miles how crap is that. going in for replacement on Tuesday then will be tested on the sunrise to sunset ride.

    Mine leaked on my first CT at similar mileage. So that's 3 in all l that I know of in nearly 4yrs on this forum. Not bad averages I reckon  :084:

    if its only three then that isn't so bad but if I had been away on one of my European jaunts it would have failed a long way from home and I wouldn't have been too pleased, not after 60K miles on Blackbirds without so much as a misfire. as it had been in for its first service weeks earlier I thought it may have been lubricating oil on the remote adjuster but it didn't feel or smell right. a quick check at the dealer and a new one was ordered.

    I've just changed the rear shock to a Hagon because I found the rebound was too much regardless of settings.  Much better now!
