New shock leaking?

Recommended Posts

My bike sat on its kickstand with the handlebars turned right for just over a week which it never does. Noticed a little oil drip just in front of the muffler behind the O2 sensor. Both sides of the motor/transmission are dry. Everything under the front sprocket is dirty but dry.

Highest wet point I can find is bottom of the spring of the rear shock. Back of the shock is a little wet. The shock is 2 months old with about 2000 miles on it. The upper rear engine bolt is also wet right in the middle of the bolt (both sides where it bolts to the frame are dry).

Any thoughts? Anything else in that area I should be looking at? I should have time this week to pull the shock.
