I have a Cogent Moab shock on my KLR. I would recommend it to anyone, quality product for this application.
For the DL1000, I would recommend Ohlins rear shock. I've have one on my Busa for years now, and you can't beat the quality, rider adjustments, rider feedback, ability to respring to your weight requirements. Hands down I believe the way to go especially for touring and a bit of off road.
As far as the forks, I believe Suzuki did a wonderful job with their OEM inverted forks. I'm guessing at this point, unless one is rerally loading up on weight, race tech gold valves maybe the way to go.
