being that the stock shocks dont have shrader valves, its not a simple process. I only know of 2 shops in the US that will tackle rebuilding a stock shock, neither of those are local.

Why not go aftermarket?

im considering, if my budget will allow. i saw a Hagon rear shock on their usa site with adjustable rebound, compression and remote spring preload adjustment.

my bike is a 1994 yamaha gts 1000, blue the fast one....

it has two shocks, one front and one rear (google it!)
