I have got a very small leak showing on the bottom mount of the rear shock right under the bike. Just a really small amount that shows after a ride and drips on the floor. Wipe it over and does not show again until next ride. very light oil. Had a look but can't see anything.

Any opinions on likely causes before I start pulling things off to have a look?

best regards

Clean all the suspect spots really well, maybe with some spray solvent if you have it. Then spray on some powdered foot spray for a fine layer of powder. This will tell you where the leak is when the powder gets damp from the oil. Sounds like the shock is gone.
