I'm not sure how to do that. I would put Ohlins on the bike. I had ESA on my 07KS. One set wore out at 20k+ and I had a new set put on under warranty. I took those off and put Ohlins on. I prefer Ohlins even though I thought the ESA was very good.

New ESA shocks run around $3K a set and are not customizable nor rebuildable and they degrade after 20K miles. Ohlins or Wilbers run around $1,500 a set are customizable for your weight and riding style and rebuildable at around $350 a set. There's no question that a set of Ohlins or Wilbers are an upgrade to the ESA shocks.

If you really want ESA, sell your bike and buy and ESA bike, it will be much cheaper than trying to get all the parts you would need.
