LDH, you replied to CanyonCarver (about using his gen4 Kyle valved TTX on gen5) that his compression spec is "way higher".
Here Geometry on the 2016 ZX10r post number #55 says that gen5 link ratio is 2.095.
If this number is true, then there is no significant difference between Kyle 2.15 ratio. Based on this fact, I would say CanyonCarver could be just fine with his (Kyle valved) TTX bolted on gen5 with gen5 stock link.
His shock in gen5 should work the same as in his gen4.
If a spot-on Kyle valving and spring recommendation are way different than Ohlins TTX for gen5, then why did Ohlins go that soft? Did they have street use in mind with factory standard spec?

This is why I need gen5 bone length measurement!
Anybody willing to measure damn thing?
Plus-minus 2mm would be enough.
Don't want to order it just to find out it's not much longer.

I got 145mm from center of the screw to center of the screw on my stock dogbone on the gen 5. That is within 1mm or so. I could get it closer if I pulled it off the bike

Thank you gsxrvette. That measurement is sweet for designing a race link.

Ladies and Gentlemen!
Thanks to Vonstallin, Gsxrvette and Rafa I think that Gen5 link is roughly "MSS3.9"
One small warning if someone installs it on Gen4: Please measure rear heigth before/after and adjust with shock shim when Gen5 link should change rear heigth.

I had someone told me the Gen 5 link was close to the 4.0 MSS links
(that i have for sale in the parts page).
I heard it might be slightly better, but not worth it...and Gen 5 is good enough.
