A true performance clutch slave cylinder for LC8 KTM model engines 950/990/1190/1290. Designed to improve the efficiency and looks of the original clutch slave cylinder. The internal piston design and seal have been drastically enhanced to prevent leaks and leave a smoother clutch action that your forearms will thank you for. CNC machined from T6 billet alloy for strength and eye-catching looks.
The piston seals are manufactured from special Viton rubber which is frozen and then CNC machined with a 'U' profile which is specifically for hydraulic use, in addition the piston itself is guided by their unique back-plate to prevent piston wear and maintain correct alignment within the slave unit. Ultimately this offers a smoother lever action and prolongs product life. The piston has been designed to reduce lever effort, further increasing feel and reducing rider fatigue. Don't let the plastic stock slave cylinder leave you stranded. Upgrade to this high quality unit that will give you confidence every time you start the bike.
All hardware parts necessary are included in the kit with full instructions and is ready to fit.
Fluid: (Use KTM approved fluid only)
Some models use mineral oil, some models use DOT 4, although the Oberon Performance slave unit will accept either oil without any issues, the master cylinder will only function correctly with the fluid recommended by either Brembo or Magura. Please check your fluid cap if you are unsure.
Oberon Performance's slave cylinder comes with a lifetime (return to base) warranty as standard - including parts and labor. Units older than 12 months from date of purchase can be returned for a repair/replacement provided a member of Oberon Performance has been contacted prior to shipping, so your details can be logged correctly and supplied with a returns number.

Oem slave cylinder started leaking internally. Thankfully I was able to nurse my 2018 Super Duke home. Did not want to put another OEM slave cylinder on after reading all the negative reviews. Ordered the Oberon billet slave cylinder. Received it very quickly. Rottweiler performance has always stocked quality products and is very timely with shipment. Oberon slave cylinder is high quality. Very easy install. I prefilled cylinder before install then performed a suction bleed on slave cylinder and master cylinder. Each bike is different but for me the feel was immediate. Easier 1st gear engagement and selecting neutral was even better. Overall way better performance over OEM clutch. If your slave cylinder is leaking, do yourself a favor, and get the Oberon slave cylinder. I do not consider the price tag excessive considering the quality and the improvement in clutch engagement. Highly recommend

I bought this as a replacement for the stock slave cylinder for my 2015 1290 Super Duke R at 36201 miles. The lever feel is now better than it was previously. The install was very easy, just make sure you reverse bleed to the master cylinder!

Great quality UK product. Not inexpensive but you get a nice quality part with improved design and hopefully relibility. Reviews I read are positive.
Easy install and bleed. Same lever effort as stock but improved feel. Adjusted engagement point to dial it in at the lever. Very happy so far. Stock cylinder leaked and my goal was to not have to deal with it again. Also replaced plastic spacer block with Oberon billet piece. Improved solid feel. No cons except price but I feel its is worth it so far.

The stock unit failed on a 2009 950 SM and we opted for this due to reviews. Install was easy. Bleeding the unit was easy. Clutch feel is vastly improved. Hopefully, it lasts longer than the stock units 14,000 miles.

The Black Oberon clutch slave was easy to install with perfect quality & the fit & finish is top top notch such addition really changed the looks of the Beast & With the installation of Motocomposites Matte Twill Carbon Fiver Front Sprocket cover
The looks of the area of the bike improved so much thanks to both companies for providing me with such quality upgrades for my Beasty Duke

Got this for my 08 ktm 990 adv with 28k miles. The stock unit failed while we were about 30 miles from home and I had to trailer the bike back. The piston had scored the inner slave cylinder so I opted for this unit over another stock unit. I also went for the upgraded aluminum backing plate. Quality is A+ and fit was perfect. They provided two different lengths of replacement bolts. The shorter of the provided bolts matched my old ones so I used those. Took about 20 mins to install and bleed. Check advrider forums for bleeding procedure. I had it at my door the next morning after I ordered. Very pleased!

A beautifully machined piece of kit, and it does improve the shift action on my 2015 1290 SD. Very simple install as well, though bleeding the clutch on 1290 SDs a bit of a pain.
What it hasn't been able to do is help finding neutral reliably when pulling up from first, but that's on KTM and not Oberon I suspect.
Probably worth the money in that case - it does improve the change action, and it does look the business. Just a shame it hasn't helped in the quest for reliable neutrals.

Bought this in anticipation to replace my factory slave cylinder with almost 29xxx miles on my 2013 990 adv. Saw that my factory one is starting to leak and the fluid was low and very dirty. Have not installed the new slave cylinder yet but both the slave and spacer look to be nice quality.

Bought as a spare for anticipation failing of the OEM unit.

After the cheap plastic OEM slave cylinder failed me 1200 miles into my 2500-mile ride, I was able to bleed my clutch to keep in working for a little while. But try to find Magura blood hydraulic fluid on a holiday weekend in the middle of the Nevada desert. So, I replaced my slave clutch on my 2015 KTM 1290 Super Duke R with this HIGH-quality Oberon billet clutch slave cylinder. Be sure to get the spacer along with the cylinder, don't cheap out and use the stock spacer. When you are doing your install, don't lose your ball bearing. I thought I lost mine and I was looking for it for 30 mins. I never lost it; it was deep inside the clutch cylinder held in the pre-greased receptacle. Besides that, the install went easy, smooth and fast. I have had it installed for about a week now and no issues so far. I am sure that the aluminum cylinder and high-quality Viton U seal will hold up to the enormous power that this LC8 engine can put out.

The Oberon clutch slave cylinder I purchased for my KTM 1190 was a good buy and works well for this motorcycle. The clutch pull is about the same as the stock slave with hopefully better reliability. The unit looks pretty trick. I got a black one with the Oberon aluminum backing plate. Installation is not difficult with two Allen bolts holding the whole assembly together on the bike. I tried reverse bleeding the unit by injecting motorex Mineral oil into the bleed nipple on the slave cylinder. This was difficult due to the pressure required at the syringe to push the oil through small gauge plumbing. I ended up vacuum bleeding after filling Master Cylinder which worked fine. Clutch action is smooth and consistent. The stock slave cylinder only lasted 8,000 miles. I thought it wasn’t worth rebuilding because it’s obviously a design weakness that caused failure. I’m very happy with my Oberon slave cylinder.

The slave cylinder on my 2004 KTM 950 Adventure failed after 16,000 miles. Since KTM would not sell the rubber ring without the whole $175 assembly, I was happy to look at other alternatives. Rottweiller's product with the 3 ring piston and aluminum plate was a grant solution. No issues with installation, although some bleeding advise would have been helpful.
