Spray or brush soapy water over the lines, connectors and the schrader valve where you add air.If you don't see any bubbles then You might have to pull the bags off and spray around the shocks themselves.I assume you're talking about the rear?

as mentioned first check the connections as you might have a simple O-ring failure and that is an easy fix... usually a shock beginning to fail will leak oil... rebuilding a shock is time consuming, but not really all that hard... I did a pictorial on this in the "how-to" section of <!-- w --><a class="postlink" href="http://www.nakedgoldwings.com">http://www.nakedgoldwings.com</a><!-- w -->
