Hit it with a hammer straight in. This might just loosen the bite it has on the threads. After that use a stud extractor or vice grips and see if it will turn out.

It won't affect your shifter. In essence all it does is lengthen or shorten the time the injector is open via the original signals. If the main ecu cuts fuel then so does the pcv.

Meant to say your 399 also doesn't include the remote preload adjustment which may or may not be needed. It's certainly a PITA to change without it if the load on your bike changes often.

Something has to make it bounce in the first place though. Suspension doesn't move on its own. No doubt a better shock could cover it up. Mine certainly doesn't do it although I don't have ESA.

If money no object then it has to be titanium. The stainless will go brown unless you maintain it frequently. The titanium will just get better looking with age.
