Ahh, so you have patience. In which case just keep an eye open for a used after market shock. I have little patience and live in Costa Hampshire so all year riding  :001:

I'm not sure patient is the right word, more like spending months tortured by having a bike in the garage! I did ride through the 19/20 winter on my Bandit which the wheels and a few other parts didn't appreciate, plus I'm still in 'keep the Tiger good' mode, so it's being tucked up all nice and warm  :190:

My new Nitron shock turned up yesterday  :001: and its already fitted. Only took just over 3 weeks to come very happy as the wait time was 4 to 6 weeks. Best money you will ever speed on your bike. Handy getting them as trade

Since 2016 I've ridden my 800XC all over South America. 99.9% two-up with luggage and MANY bad/dirt roads thrown in for good measure.

I changed my rear suspension to a Nitron unit (had it shipped in from the UK to Colombia) and have never looked back. Most highly recommended. Bonus points for the fact that they are made in the UK :-)
