Easy to do it yourself if you are handy at DIY.
Videos on youtube showing how to service a damper.

send it back to sprint themselves in the uk, theyre quite cheap for servicing once its not the pro-race damper (not serviceable apparently) theyre not really a diy job like the stock ones on gsxr's/yamahas or ohlins dampers

NDM would probably be able to do it for you.
They have the gear to purge and nitrogen charge shocks etc...
