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.

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.
