This intake kit retains the RAM air system on the RC8 by sealing the lower airbox to the bottom of the fuel tank, effectively creating a larger plemumn and adding a much larger foam filter element.
Used and endorsed by Factory KTM HMC racing's Chris Fillmore, Ty Howard and many other RC8 profesional racers, the Rottweiler Intake System for the RC8 is absolutely unbeatable in terms of shear horsepower gains. 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. The RC8 Intake System retains the use of the Ram Air stock system on the RC8.
Benefits of the Rottweiler Intake System:
Suggestions upon installation:
Notes, suggestions and precautions:
The Rottweiler Intake Systems for the RC8 will need some sort of catch can fitted up to the crankcase breather from the rear cylinder head. All other models have the breather line routed inside. Since the RC8 produces much higher RPMs the crankcase tends to blow more oil on that model only. We have left this option up to the customer because many people track their RC8s and many tracks have different rules regarding catching liquids. Another option is to use a 1/2" K&N mini breather and route a long 1/2" ID hose up high.
These do not come pre oiled for shipping purposes. We reccomend No Toil Oiling kits for both our intake filters and pre filters.
This product carries a 1 year warranty against defects in materials and craftsmanship.

I wish I could attest to this product on a stock bike. However, mine is anything and everything but stock. My RC8 is a fire breathing....nightmare... to put it simply. Not for the faint of heart. Maybe not even for those with a heart. After doing a monster over bore, porting, polishing and milling the heads, valve work, crank work, Gripone's S4 with inertia monitor, STM slipper clutch, Factory pros shift star kit, Healtechs quickshifter....a partridge in a pear tree...brakes, suspension etc....I needed the absolute best intake that money could buy, coupled with a sweet set of SAS block off plates/emissions removal kit.
Rottweiler was the name the popped up over and over in my search. And the more I searched, the more I came to realize that this would be the intake that I would use. Because, quite frankly, I do not believe there is ANYTHING else out there that would feed my beast and not starve her out and burn her up.
I am not, in the least bit, disappointed with Rottweiler and to top it off, Chris was great to deal with, my products were delivered super fast, and I received some free gear that I had no idea about until I opened up the box. Love the beer koozie guys, hell yes.
So to wrap this up, if you have been on the fence about anything from these guys....or even if you have just recently discovered them and for a split second thought to yourself " that'd be cool " as you are browsing their site....just do yourself a favor and buy it. It just doesn't get any better...plain and simple.
You can't outrun this one......

The guys shipped this from California to Toronto in 2 days flat, sadly CBSA held it for 2 weeks. I did the intake, SAS, O2 and tuneEcu and previously did a slip on. Anyone with an RC8. ANYONE! You have to get this intake setup.
Throttle response is immensely different, my bike feels supercharged now. There's no gap in throttle response, no lag and my bike feels like the visual weapon she is.
This is the 100% best HP/TQ bang for your buck you can do to your motorcycle and you don't need a Dyno to prove it.

Had this bike for years and wish I did this when I first got it. Totally transformed the bike into what it should have been. Powercommander was a good addition to get it finally fueled properly.
