As I'm starting my track bike build, it looks like getting an aftermarket rear link is worth the money. Kyle Racing is out of the question as they said they're no longer making their links for my weight and have no plans to.. I guess my only options are Attack or MSS. I can't find where I can buy the MSS link and Attack doesn't even include the bearings I would need. Can someone point me into the right direction? Trying to get my bike done ASAP to start signing up for track days.

Also, any pros or cons between the Ohlins TTX GP or Penske triple adjustable? Penske does do custom valving, however I do like the remote adjuster option on the Ohlins.

Let me know your thoughts and much appreciated!

This is what works very good for my Gen4.
Link: Gen5 link, it's dimentions are between MSS3.5 and MSS4 link, consequently link action must be "as good as MSS".
Shock: Ohlins TTX upgraded with GP main piston and GP steel main tube (these parts cost less than 80).
Note: TTX valving MUST change significantly when going from stock link to aftermarket or to Gen5 link. I use C37/R5 as suggested by good member LDH, always very good tyre wear and grip.

Thanks for the information. I didn't know the Gen 5 link was an option. I did end up finding MSS through FB and messaged them. They sent me a quote for their 3.5 version, but I emailed back asking for more information on all their versions.

Traxxion Dynamics is the suspension shop I'll be going to and after further discussion, they said Penske can valve according to the rear link I get. With that said and them recommending Penske over Ohlins, I'm leaning more towards the Penske option. They mentioned Bitubo being an option as well. Anybody have experience with the Bitubo units?

I got my MSS link along with my k-tech shock from Jon Tyus at CTR suspensions, try him or Thermosman (Mike Fitzgerald) as well, he might have some stuff left.
Appreciate that. Forgot to update this thread. Traxxion Dynamics has my bike now. They have the best experience with Penske shocks so naturally I went with Penske. Penske also has more experience with the Attack Racing rear link so I went with that as well. Re-doing my factory forks until I can afford some carts next year.
