Rear Shock Absorber Issue.Advice Needed.

Just bought my 1st ZX6R,but worried about the rear suspension.
It's a '96 F2.The hose from the reserve cylinder/pre adjuster had been loosened from the shocker absorber.It is leaking fluid of some sort.And,I'm unsure but aren't these pressurised too?
What do I need to do to correct this?
Does it need to be filled with some sort of fluid and or re pressurised maybes with either nitrogen or air?
Or would be easier to replace?And would a one from maybes later models fit,as they are available more cheaply.
All advice appreciated.
Thankyou

Replace, or rebuild.

The oil is in one location. The pressurized bladder is seperate from the fluid, (ie...the nitrogen and the oil do not intermingle).......but...

You need to tighten the fitting to stop the leaking, but depending on how much oil leaked out, the bladder will be extended and pressure will be low as will the oil leavel
So refresh/rebuild or simply spend the money and replace it with something far newer and better......?

If you have a suspension person local, lots of time you get get fresh oil, seals and nitrogen refill for around $125
RJ2112 and Strider like this.

woohoo we are having fun now
Stupid people say stupid things on the internet, so be wary of who those people are. If you solicit advice on the internet, just keep in mind 99% of what you'll receive is not based on fact or science-and likely atleast 95% of it is based on bullshit and bravado regurgitated from some other schlub who also did not experience any of what they claim and are also full of shit. If you don't like my bluntness- too bad. I am not here to please you, so move along, your approval is not desired nor is it needed. So before opening your pie hole and adding more stupidity, perhaps sit back, listen, absorb and learn something. You know that saying, it is better to remain silent and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!
