Rear shocks
Taking my 85 ltd part bike down. Found oil in the air lines near the rear air filler block is this and indication that the seals in the rear shocks are bad?

i'm sure it came from one of the shocks,its not a problem but if the mc has alot ofmiles or age,a seal replacement and oil change woulkd be a worthwhile bit of maintenace,if shocks require running at max pressure to maintain a good ride,upgrade of the shocks or changeout to new progressive springs for stock shocks would be suggestion

That was the idea. Was taking the air lines going back to the shocks off to fit with new fittings better suited for the progressive shocks.
