Sometime before winter, I need to rebuild my WR250 shock.

I'd been getting oil/gas leaks in the garage all spring. Thought they were all coming from my Aprilia RS50 (probably the carb) but the bikes all get shuffled on a regular basis so the oil/gas spots aren't always under the same bike.

Then it rains, I take the WR250 to work (so I don't have to wash my commuter afterwards), hit a bump and found out I'm riding a pogo stick!
Seems all the oil as leaked out of the WR's shock.

Anyway, where should I take it for a rebuild?

Well, I appreciate the link for DIY but...it just fills me with depression. (I know why but this is "Thumpers" not "Phycological Analysis")

I called PDR Performance and think I'll just drop off the bike with them. I'm not even going to remove/re-install the shock. That's how far gone I am.

Thanks for the suggestions. Later!

Yes. And snowmobiles.
That doesn't mean I want to talk about winter now! :kicknuts:
