You have to order one made for this bike.

Look around, I've seen it with a huge price difference between different places.

If you have access to a machinist...... I did a suspension upgrade on my OEM shock by increasing the preload by adding a 1inch spacer. I am a wide load and my wife isn't a ballerina so we needed some "extra" spring. Works fine. It is a dicey and low tech alternative but it worked.
