LDH I once got Thermosman, Max McAllister and Dan Kyle all at the same dinner table in Danville VA. That was an entertaining evening...

mpp12 I purchased that Nitron from Thermosman, to my weight so I imagine is somewhere good...

and the improvement was noticeable.... I just know it could be better...

Porschenut Gen 5 links and dog bone are hard to come by unless you buy a shock/links/dogbone as a combo used as a take off.

The dogbone is actually pretty affordable from the dealer (bought one...never used it) but it turned out that by the time I put in bushings and found links it would be more expensive so I sourced parts from a wrecker on ebay instead.

I do not think there will be allot of used links for the Gen 5.

The OEM Gen 5 link perimeters are close to most of the Gen 4 race link perimeters. The Gen 4 Needed links bad, but this bike is decent enough.

Now sure if Attack decided to make links for the Gen 5 also.
MSS do have some. slight change over OEM.

If you don't have MKII jet and additionally need to open the shock anyway, then you may consider upgrading your mechatronic adjusters to manual adjusters.
MKI adjusters are relatively cheap, MKII adjusters are expensive, GP adjusters cost fortune.
I have done it for a Ducati mechatronic TTX, not 100% sure about Kawasaki.
I needed these Ohlins parts for MKI adjuster assembly, see picture:
