I hope you are referring to the front FORKS. There is no shock up front. If one of your fork legs is leaking you need to replace the fork seals, both of them is better. They're cheap but the labor will set you back if you can't do it yourself. You also need to make sure to check the legs for whatever is causing your fork seal to leak (pitted fork leg, etc)...or learn to bring the wheelie down softer, lol...

yeah thats what done it for sure, i have let a few of them down kinda hard, not meaning too. i guess ill have to learn form mistakes like this so, umm what does it involve to replace them? i mean i am mechanically inclined. i do believe i could do i tmyself providing no special tools or anything. Ohh yea its a 05 600RR

It's pretty easy if you have a buddy and a fork seal driver.
