Rottweiler Intake System - Adventure 990


Product Description


This is the very system that started a revolution. The Rottweiler Intake system has lit the KTM community on fire with grade AA results across board and continues to deliver. To start, you can expect from 8 to 12 horsepower gains, but it doesn't end there. With the addition of a 'Snap Out' bracket on Adventure models, swapping pre-filters becomes a 45 second affair with one screwdriver. Once the intake is installed and the extra room is now available, Adventure owners can also benefit from 128 extra cubic inches of storage space with the 'Dog House' storage box. On all models, you can also expect a 6 lb (3.6 kg) weight savings with the removal of the SAS and Evap canisters systems using our SAS Stage 1-3 systems. That's almost another horsepower in weight savings alone. Don't let the stock airbox make your bike feel like the brakes are being dragged by choking out your engine's ability to pull in the air it needs! 

These do not come pre oiled for shipping purposes. We recommend No Toil Oiling kits for both our intake filters and pre filters.

Benefits of the Rottweiler Intake System:

  • The most cost effective horsepower gains on the market. About $30 to $40 (US) per HP vs $100 to $200 for an aftermarket exhaust.
  • Dramatically reduces the jerky 'on-off' throttle response of the big twin. Mountain roads and tight traffic become a joy again.
  • Full tri layer foam element on all sides of the filter including the top, not just one side, aiding in air velocity optimization and overall filter surface area.
  • The outer layers of foam provide optimum filtration and load-up capacity while the inner layer is made of special self-extinguishing filter foam. Together, they give the best combination for air flow, engine protection and safety.
  • New V3.0 baseplate machined from billet 6061 T6 for ultra rigidity, pocketed for lightweight and then thermo-coated to reflect rising engine temperature.
  • No tools needed to change or remove the filter. Removed in seconds.
  • Weight reduction of 1.6kg (3.5lbs) just by replacing the stock airbox with the Rottweiler Intake.
  • Removal of the stock airbox frees up an enormous amount of space in the front of the filter than can be used for accessory storage like HID ballasts, ignition controllers and such that were previously difficult to package.
  • Serviceability of the throttle bodies becomes drastically less difficult to get to.
  • High quality lifetime Buna N 'X' rings seal off the throttle bodies in 4 places.
  • Adds a wicked sound that while docile at cruising speeds, barks with authority when cracked open.
  • All necessary hardware included.

Suggestions upon installation:

  • It is advised but not mandatory to remove the emissions hardware when installing a Rottweiler Intake System. The part where the Secondary Air Injection (SAS or SAI) attaches to the stock air-box is removed with this installation and if the installer wants to keep the SAS/SAI on the bike (rare), you will need to attach a small filter to the leftover hose. See our SAS Stage kits for block off kits.

  1. Easy Install and Improved Performance 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 10th Apr 2020

    Installing the new intake is extremely easy, if you follow the youtube install video. It was a lot of nuts and bolts to keep track of, but nothing that a weekend mechanic can't tackle. I did find that the performance increased with the new intake, and with the quick change kit added I can honestly change my pre-filter in under 60 seconds.

  3. She finally breathes 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Jul 2018

    I’ve owned this 2010 990 for 7 years, I should have done this 7 years ago. Excellent fitment, great quality and I’m a huge fan. Well played Rottweiler team.

  4. Excellent 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Jan 2018

    Well made, easy to fit and makes working on the bike so much easier

  5. great product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 14th Oct 2017

    Best customer service ever - Thanks Dave!!!

    Great quality and design. This intake really changed the behavior of my 990 for he better. Easy to install (except that front SAS blockoff plate), but does require the 15-min idle ECU reset afterwards to run properly - At least when combined with the Single Side Out Yoshimura.

  6. Trail life made easy 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Sep 2017

    This filter assembly was easy to install and greatly reduces the time it takes to access the filter element in dusty conditions.The intake honk is increased on acceleration but I kind of like that sound.

  7. UNBELIEVEABLE 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Sep 2017

    I bought all the gear for my 2012 KTM 990 ..Stage 3, snap out, dog house, and map switch..Dave at Rottweiler answered all my questions..called me back 2 times..awesome service and products

  8. 990 intake 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st May 2016

    This is a great product, couldn't believe how the bike now runs
    Does have an angry growl under acceleration but minimal when crusing
    An easy to fit kit , I did SAS removal, fitted the dog box and the simple click down kit for access to airbox all at same time, fortunately in NZ we don't have canister system from factory so didn't need to remove it
    I'm running Akra slip ons with the KTM AKRA map
    Everything went together without a hitch
    Great stuff

  9. Should come like this from the factory! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 29th Jan 2016

    I used the tunecu Power-Tripp Akra map with this intake and FMF dual cans. It runs perfect! Better than ever. I also did the o2 dongles, and the low end is much more use able. I let my buddy ride my bike before, and told him "Run it at 4000 rpm's minimum" because the low end sucked so bad. Well, you know how it is if you're reading this and have a stock intake. Now, it's smooth and linear power all the way up to the limiter, except it pulls much harder on the top end. No regrets, do it.

  10. Great product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Dec 2015

    As the others stated. This is a must for any 990 owner.

  11. Changes the bike! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th Sep 2015

    This kit greatly improves low to mid throttle pull and totally improves off throttle feel in the same range. Every component has the highest quality feel and look. You will definitely get much louder intake noise but not even a worry for me as the improved characteristics are fully worth it.

  12. Sweet System 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th May 2015

    Needless to say, this is a performance mod with attitude, but also cleans up a few of the nags found on the bone stock 990. The quality is impeccable and everything went together perfectly. I am a good mechanic with quite a bit of KTM experience and installed the whole kit and kaboodle myself. Intake, Snap-out, Doghouse and removed the SAS and canister. The whole job is very straightforward but does require some tools and a bit of modification to the venting and crankcase breather. All this is fairly well explained in the instructions. I did the TuneECU update with the provided map and Rottweilers video tutorial is excellent. I also added Dual FMF Q4 mufflers.
    The GOOD STUFF is here!
    This a performance mod! It sounds throaty and makes me feel good. It is certainly not annoying. Cruising is just loud enough to know it is there but crack her open and she barks nicely!! The snatchiness is gone, acceleration is quite noticeably improved, temperature is way lower and I could not be happier. On top of great products, their customer service is awesome. Thanks Rottweiler!

  13. Nice Product 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd May 2015

    Out of the necessity to be able to quickly service the air filter on the 990 Baja, Rottwieler's foam air filter was installed. The SAS and evaporative canister assemblies were left installed.
    The now noticeable air intake noise on acceleration was expected and resulted in mixed feelings. On one hand, twisting the throttle was never more thrilling, on the other hand, the "popping" sound emitted sounds at times like a backfire. No worries though. The mind boggling performance did not fade and fuel mileage remained near the 40 mpg mark.
    After due course, there will not be a need to remove the pollution reduction hardware for the bike's intended use. I see merits in removing the SAS and canister for storage reasons, but not performance reasons. All is well with that.
    The Snap Out System is next up for installation.
    The 990 Baja that benefitted from the air filter, runs 100% of its time on the endless miles of gravel roads, two track and abandoned stretches of pavement around Pahrump, Nevada. The bike has only seen four signalized intersections. It is thought of as a EXC 990.

    Note from Rottweiler Performance: The popping is from keeping the emissions intact as the SAS system injects air into the exhaust causing a lean condition in the header which causes popping. Removal of this system will eliminate that completely.

  14. Nice growl, low-end grunt, less throttle snatch, super! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Feb 2015

    So, if you're going to do this, you may as well DE-SAS it, and do the Canisterecomy as well. And if you're going to do all of that, the Snap out is a no-brainer. I did the O2 sensor delete too.

    Great instructions, great fit and finish to everything, goes together well. Be prepared to bust some knuckles getting to the front cylinder SAS removal and block-off plate installation (on a 990 Adv), but that's not the fault of any of the kit pieces.

    Great low down grunt without the feeling that she's going to stall. Smooth all the way to the Rev limiter. Less than a minute to get to the air filter. Nice stuff all of the way around! Highly recommended.

  15. It changes the bike 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Jan 2015

    Like so many other 990 Adv owners, I grew tired of the bike's notorious "rowing" between 3-5k RPM. I've been riding and modding it for 4 years, and nothing helped...until I installed this along with the Stage 3 Kit. It's like she can finally breathe, and the throttle response is outstanding, and I can finally ride at a steady RPM without being jerked around. Well-designed and well-crafted parts from these guys.

  16. Performance In Mind 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 4th Nov 2014

    I am new to the big bike crowd and after purchasing the 990R I found the need as we all do to increase power. Of coarse the first step was get her to breath. I searched the market to find a company with more than just one product. I wanted a company that had designed and used multiple products all in harmony with each other. The need for this was so I could purchase products at my pace knowing the final result was a tried and trusted combination of part with proven results. I found this in Rottweiler. The Air Intake System makes immediate results, maintains easily like my dirt bike and the fitment is nothing short of perfect. I would strongly recommend anyone starting out like I am or long time owner to diligently review the products on the market and you will find what I did. Not just an air filter but a system engineered for performance.
