what were you hoping to pay? Shocks are expensive.... check the price of a new Suzuki shock at your local dealer.
Wilbers offer an Eco-line shock for 349 euros. part number 530-0116-00, that's 270 quid plus post on Ebay Germany.
Unlikely you'll get anything cheaper.
I had a Hagon fitted to my VFR800. It was a well made bit of kit that transformed the handling of the bike. They vare rebuidable too. Well worth the money.
Other than that your only choice is to take a chance on a used unit from a brakers but any part of that age is unlikely to be in good serviceable condition.
