Yup, sure did. Fine one weekend, pogo the next. Amazing what will happen after a bike sits in a garage for a week.

If it's the same as my '01s shock it's put together about like any other moto shock. I had mine freshened up by my local honda dealer (back when I was in VA--awesome shop). It wasn't leaking, but I figured that after more than a decade it could probably use new fluid
