I live in christchurch and since my bike only does 40kmh in a 60 (dont worry, perfmoance parts arriving tomorrow!) so on Thursday i was caught riding through some pot holes on my way home and i felt the rear of the bike give way.
What's happened is one of my two rear shocks is having issues returning so once i hit the pothole the entire rear wheel started to twist with the top of the tire leaning to the left and the bottom leaning to the right (from the perspective of sitting on the bike).
I've diagnosed it as being a bad shock because once put on the center stand the the shock fixes itself and is once again capable of supporting the weight of the bike. Can anybody help me find a replacement pair or possibly a rebuild kit if it isn't too big of a job? I imagine that it's just a bit leaky and the internal spring is a bit kaput. I'd like to replace the shock tho because the shocks given out since the thursday incident (edited)
