Any other Rear Shock option

I have a 2010 KTM 990 Adventure with R suspension. The rear shock needs close to $800 in work so I was wondering if there is an alternative that anyone has used with success. Elka. Ohlins, Upgraded WP etc... Thanks

Are you looking for a cheaper shock or one better than the WP? A new one is more than $2000

May want to try another tech. I asked another inmate about some work he''d done and both forks and shock plus shipping to Cali and back was $925 or so.

Anything else, elka, ohlins , wilbers, etc... would be a road bike shock. That WP is top drawer, not a whole lot better available.

What happened to your shock? I mean you can run these things with almost no oil and they are usually fine.
