[?] look at my shock

I was out tinkering on the xx today and noticed the shocks looks kind of scratched/scuffed up and didn't know if I should worry about. If anyone has insight about it here is a picture.

Jah 82,
Looks as though the shock leaked oil (drop visible), collected sand and proceeded to destroy the piston. imo

No covers on them that I know of. I just go the bike last week and took it out once, came home and noticed this last night. The oil spot on top I think is water from when I was rinsing it off.

I will keep that in mind, I wanted to eventually upgrade to the ltr450 shocks but not till next pay day. Depending on how cheap I can find them I may get a hold of you about your stockers. Thanks

I think the drop at top on the black cover is just water from when I was doing a rinse down of the bike. I dont recall actually seeing any oil anywhere on the lower part.

If shock covers were the culprit the springs would have wear marks on them. I agree with Sid on this one. Is this just the one side or both fronts?

Both fronts look like that. Backs look fine.
