Hello All!

Just bought my first k100 today, there are a few small things I need to fix but it rides great! 
I cannot wait to plumb the depths of this resource.

Looks good. What sort of rear shock is it?

Welcome!  Nice bike you have there. 

Basic2, looks like a Works Performance shock.  They work pretty nice.

I'm not sure i bought the bike today and I just took the bags off to look at it before I took that picture. Whatever it is (and i hope it is works performance as suggested) it needs to be rebuilt because it is leaking a bit. Anyone know what a shock rebuild costs or if it is something that a relatively handy individual can do?

I had a blown works performance shock for my K75S rebuilt, charged and a stock length rod installed for something like $120 + shipping about a year ago.   Turnaround is about two weeks.

When the shaft seal goes, the bladder in the reservoir goes too.  They replace both as part of the rebuild as I seem to recall.

Their website has a section on BMW's.  Your shock looks like their Steel Tracker w/TRS,ARS, and REZ.

BTW, anyone with shocks other than Works Performance be advised that they rebuild and tune other people's shocks as well as their own.  Judging from their pricing, they might save you a few dollars.
