Gen1 Rear shock help

I need to rebuild or replace my rear shock. It has 33k miles on it and never been opened. The service manual says nothing about how to rebuild it and I don't have the cash to buy an Ohlins or anything around that price. Can somebody give me a hand here?

It's not user serviceable as it's charged with nitrogen. You're going to have to send it to a reputable shop to have it serviced.

I may not be perfect, but at least I don't ride a Suzuki.
