fluid leaking on rear fender...rear shock?



ive got some type of fluid on my rear tire fender hugger. im pretty sure its suspension oil dripping from that little gold tube thing by the spring..idk much about this type of stuff. can i fix it my self or is it better to just bring it a shop. what could it be? a bushing? i just noticed it while riding today. i do a lot of burnouts and wheelies by the way...


edit, pretty sure its my battery leaking, took the seat off today and saw a small hole ontop of the battery and there was a little fluid coming out from it and the sticker on the top of the battery was soaked

You wouldnt think much of it, but doing wheelies puts a major strain on the suspension...Slamming things around that arent ment to be slammed. Could be fluid from the shock resivour (gold tube thing). Check the battery. It sits directly above that area under the seat. The box that the battery sits in has holes in the bottom of it.
You may have a bad seal allowing fluid to escape when shock is compressed...?

Battery could be leaking fluid from the cells...? Wipe the hugger clean and dry. Sit on the bike to compress the shock. See what happens

Yes remove the two allen head screws from the back corners of your seat pull it off your battery is directly under your seat.

Have you touched the fluid? What's it feel like? You could just have ran over something on the road. Wash your bike, go for a ride, do a wicked burnout and a whuulie past a cop and see if its still leaking.

If it is you're shock you are definately better off to pick up a used one rather than fixing that one... You can get a used one for around $60 - $100. Fixing that one will cost you hundreds at the mech shop.

did you ever check the battery for leakage?

This may be a stretch but it could be brake fluid.... Check for holes in the tube. It could have gotten there from blowing in the wind. (oil drops blowing that is) Run your hand up and down to and see if you notice anything.
