Suspension rebuildable?

I have the hots for a new GS Adv. My question is the suspension "life". Is the "active" suspension rebuildable, or do you have to buy a new unit? How many miles will the newer shocks last? Thanks

Got a dealer question.

Has anyone done business with Weaver Powersports in North Tonowanda (Buffalo), NY. Good or bad experiences? They picked up the Ducati franchise and I thought I would give them a look. Thanks
