Question about 2007 Yamaha Royal Star Venture
First I must state I'm not familiar with your particular model but AM familiar with rear shocks.(have re-built hundreds)
First thin to check is that if it is re-buildable!
The easiest way to tell this is to see your dealer and ask to see the parts fisch for the rear shock. If it displays a seal assembly then it is re-buildable.
Also you could try a local shock repairer/suspension tuner, they should Know.
Here in Australia a shock re-build costs about $300-$350 if the shock shaft hasn't got wear damage to the chrome.(They can be re-chromed)
If the shaft is worn then its not much different to the price of a new one I'm afraid.
As the shock is charged with nitrogen gas to high pressure I would NOT RECOMMEND you to try rebuild it yourself !!!!
But removing it yourself, while a little tricky sometimes,can save some$
Hope this helps a little
P.S. To find a shock repairer in your area try the classified section at the back of your favorite road bike magazine!!!

There is no quick fix for a shock, the seal started leaking so this means that you will have to replace the shocks. the seal is worn out Infact the shocks should of been replaced at least 10,000 miles ago to insure that you are getting the best ride and tire contact as possible You maybe able to find a set online cheaper infact I just checked around I found some aftermarkets shocks for 176.00 each
