Slight trace of oil at the bottom of rear air shock

Hi it could be the seal in the shock. These are air assisted shocks not just air. If the leak is not too bad leave it alone otherwise you may need to replace the whole shock. Regards Jim...

My 93 goldwing has no air shock valve for adjusting air pressure.would my bike have oil dampened front shocks a nd how do i service them if they are oil dampened.a freind told me they could be oil...

Actually all shocks are oil dampened - the air pressure just increases the dampening effect of the oil. In all Goldwings the front shocks air pressure is adjustable and supposed to be 6 psi.
If you no longer have the air ports on the shocks then something is very wrong with this bike - the front fork has been modified, the shocks have been replaced with non genuine parts. Have the bike inspected by a Honda certified repair shop immediately.

I have a 1983 1100 aspencade and oil is leaking from one rear air shock. **can they be rebuilt?** I found an oil seal and o-rings at if so can i use standard hydrolic oil to fill shock

Yes , the oil seal is available from Honda. If too much air pressure is put into the shock it is not uncommon for the seal to pop. A 5wt or 10wt shock oil should work just fine. Consider changing the oil in the other shock also.

I want to know if the any of the 2002 sportster models are oil cooled


I do not know of any 2002 sportster models that are oil cooled. I have heard of owners fitting an oil cooler on HD's, but I, personally, have never seen it done on 2002 sportsters.

Hope this helps.

CRF450X Shock Rebuild Parts

it is not that common that you have to change blader and bushing...blader can be easily check out by looking if it is crack or to much warp...bushing will be ok if the coating is still there. i sugest that you bought after market race tech oil seal and dust...less expensive than honda and i only work with them and there is no issue yet. d'ont forget when you put oil into the shock you will have to wait to endclosed it till there is no air bubble at all in you're oil...thanks to leave good feedback.
