Rear Shocks leaked

Post by Wingnut137 »

I put about 10psi in what I assume is the stock rear shocks on my gl1100 after a bit of riding I parked it my garage on the center stand. I went back out the next morning and found that the oil had leaked from the left rear shock. I checked air valve for the rear shocks and when i let the pressure out oil came out of the valve as well. What would cause oil to come out of the air fill valve?
