DL650 K7 rear shock replacement - South Africa

Hi all,

Have a 2007 DL650 and the rear shock has started to leak.
I'm hoping someone in South Africa could give me advice on either where to find a second hand shock from a DL1000 that I can get serviced / refurbished, or a new aftermarket shock at a not so ridiculous price as the stock Suzuki replacement one. (14,500 ZAR / 995 USD)
I'm 1.94m (6.3 ft) so would appreciate any seat height improvement a replacement shock can give me.

In the states, the US of A, we are lucky to have several shops that do a rebuild for about 1/3 of new. Then they work better than new and are serviceable. Sasquatch even adds a nitrogen charge.
