919 Rear Shock Options

I searched and searched. Are there any other after market rear shocks for a 2003 919 besides Ohlins? What I would like to find is a reasonable rear shock that is adjustable.

Thanks for the info guys, on a side note. What other model bikes besides the cbr 600 can I get parts for fro my 919?
I have not found a great list. I have seen many use parts from other bikes but it usually takes some kind of fabrication.
I have limited tools and would like some easy bolt on parts.

Not much is easy bolt on, and the parts that are need modification that requires tools. For example old CBR600 forks require much stiffer fork springs.
