LAUNCHING IN EARLY DEC - PRE ORDERS OPEN!
Nearly a year of design and development has been poured into Rottweilers new intake system and they could not be more proud to bring you the next-level quality, fit, and finish that this intake system exudes. The Rottweiler Performance 790/890 Adventure Intake System is a shining example of our commitment to being the best at what we do and our dedication to innovation for big KTMs exudes from every aspect of this next level system.
For starters, they designed the 790/890 intake to act as one large velocity stack smoothly leading the intake charge right into your two OEM stacks. The result is a massive increase in unlocked horsepower and smooth delivery Rottweiler Performance has been known for. What are the gains? Hold on to your Powerparts seat, dyno testing on our bone stock 790 Adventure test bike simply installing the system with no additional mapping the gains over stock to the rear tire were over 10 horsepower at 6300 RPM, right where you ride the bike! (See additional pics for dyno charts)
As usual, they didn't stop there with the improvements. The stock air box once again fails the white glove tests in spectacular fashion and is prone to multiple sealing issues leading to worn valves, valve seats, cylinder walls and eventually possible engine failure. World renown for their for quality craftsmanship and class leading filtration capabilities, we contracted none other than Twin Air Filters to construct the foam element for our new intake system, leveraging their stellar reputation as OEM standard on all of KTM's enduro series motorcycles. This means you are getting the best of both worlds: Rottweiler design mated with Twin Air's quality. An unbeatable package.
As a bonus the filters are now packable using a standard removable filter cage design and with up to 6 spares fitting in the 790/890 Adventure's side pods, you'll never feel that your engine isn't being properly protected on those long off road adventures.

For those of you who would like to know more about mapping the 790 and 890 engines, we have provided the information below to help you understand the options for that bike in terms of controlling the fuel. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to call us. We are happy to help!
Do I need to remap with a Power Commander for this intake system? Absolutely not. The gains mentioned above were completely stock and the factory ECU easily compensates the fuel using the stock narrow band O2's to keep your air fuel ratio at a safe 14.7. Hours of dyno testing, real world data logging and static load runs showed that the stock ECU safely, easily and quickly adjusts to any configuration with protective measures like ion knock sensors and other methods. You are completely safe to install this air box and enjoy the ride.
So I'm safe, but are there more gains with additional mapping using a Power Commander V? Absolutely, and we have been burning the midnight oil to bring you even more mapping to support your desired combinations than ever before. Simply choose the map that is closest to your final configuration and we will load the map(s) for you for free! For more information on the benefits of mapping please see our mapping options section below.
What's the difference between STREET and RACE maps?
A STREET map will allow the user to keep their stock narrow band O2 sensors plugged in and does not interfere with emissions based mapping and only has fueling changes in the open loop section of your fuel map where the stock ECU will not try and override the changes. This serves riders wanting to stay in compliance with emissions standards and retain their cruise control while still benefitting from ignition advances throughout and fueling corrections in open loop.
A RACE map is designed for closed course racing purposes so that the user can have full control over the entire map range. The use of maps designated as 'RACE MAPS' require the stock narrow band O2s to simply be unplugged so that the stock ECU will not be able to read them and override the map and correct the trims back to an emissions based 14.7 air fuel ratio in the closed loop section (see attached chart in the pics above). Unplugging the stock narrow band O2s will only cause cruise control on the 790 Adventure will stop working and an engine light on the dash will appear. Engine lights typically only warn of blinkers not working or emissions systems unplugged. You will still get important warnings on the dashboard in bold letters. This can be easily reversed if the stock narrow band O2s are plugged back in.
What is the difference between MODERATE and ADVANCED maps?
Moderate ignition advances are just that. They are designed to be a bit of a bump in power without pushing the limits. What we have found is that KTM typically ships some street homologated bikes with very mild ignition curves. We assume that this is because they cannot predict what kind of fuels will be available to the customer in their given part of the world and the engines can easily take some more ignition advance and take advantage of some extra power.
Advanced ignition curves are created using standard U.S. 91 octane rated pump gas fuel, the close equivalent to 95 RON. The ignition advances in these maps have been taken as far as safely possible using sophisticated knock sensing equipment. These maps will usually yield even more hidden horsepower but it is recommended that the user only run a minimum 91 octane fuel (95 RON) or equivalent. These maps DO NOT require race gas. It is recommended to use these maps in conjunction with a Dynojet Map Switch and another map with the same configuration but milder ignition advances so that the user can dial back the advance with the flick of a switch in such a case that lower octane fuel is necessary or ends up in the fuel tank. It should also be known that the 790/890 Adventure models do have knock sensors in the coils, which in the case of accidental lower octane fuel the bike will handily adjust and protect itself.
