Who services rear shocks?

I need to have my rear shock serviced. Who does it? Nitrigen and all. No one here does it.

what's wrong with it?
If you just need to clean it and replace the oil, it's really easy. You can get N2 in any good motorcycle shop for 10-20 bucks

You mean no one offers the service, or no one does it themselves? It is easy, follow the manual, do a good job bleeding it and take it to your favorite motorcycle shop for a $10-25 nitrogen charge.

I have rebuilt the shock. Or should I say I have replaced the outer shaft seal and filled it full of oil but no one around here can charge it reliably.
