Rear shock rebound fade when hot

Has anyone experienced less rebound when riding in hot weather? I was out this weekend in a hot day and I noticed my back end was bouncing more than usual. I increased the rebound and it was much improved. Just wondering if anyone else has noticed this.

Does the rebound actually work on the stock rear shock? LOL

I have noticed this before, but not on the GSX-S (it was on a DL-1000). The fluid gets hot and thins out and the dampening changes and the bike can get 'sloppy' handling. Just one more GOOD excuse to replace that OEM boat anchor they call a 'shock' and get something better, like a Wilbers or K-Tech unit.

This past weekend I went to a trackday in Zolder with my stock gsxs... and the rear shock was as soft as my mountainbike right after the second 20min session... PURE TRASH.

Final session I was riding a sail boat...

Youíve got to get a shock and have it de-restricted. It will transform the bike and what you think of it. One of its main features is a good strong engine
