What Cartridge kits available for 16+?

I've been trying to find out what cartridge kits are available for the Gen5 but haven't seen much. I know the oem setup is suppose to be decent but I want to see what options are out there.

I haven't actually done an install on the Gen5, but a lot of the racers down here are running the Gen 4 Ohlins Cart Kits in the Gen5 with a plate to block off the gas system crap.

K-tech and Bitubo have pressurized kits and shocks. I thought Ohlins was supposed to be coming out with a cart kit, but had no eta.

Ktech is good news. I don't know of anyone that has experience with bitubo up here.

So I assume the website hasn't been updated, Ktech doesn't list anything. I'm assuming it's the 20dds Kit? Any idea if there will be a 25ssk setup available?

Hot damn!

So then the next question, how far off are the shocks? Valving will be different because of the linkage but other than that is the length different?

Just FYI they are phasing out the gas cart kits in favor of a much better design.
