Nearly a year of design and development has been poured into our new intake system and we 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, we 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, we 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. Add one spare below or click here for more spare options.

MAPPING INFORMATION 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.

Had a little drama with uk parcelforce sitting on the package for twelve days after it cleared customs but I never received the invoice. Several emails later and it got sorted and delivered literally five mins ago. Off to fit it shortly and see how it performs !

Easy install, good products with excellent instructions on the videos. Went along with the Arrow Decat and Command V programmer plug and play for racing. No O2 sensor removal or Dongle install for some reason. Good power delivery, excellent traction but not as snappy on the bottom. Muffler or end cap change might make it a little snappier... Stalling is gone, still takes several tries to start when cooled down. Overall better off-road performance that kept me smiling on the overnight riding adventure to the peaks of the Appalachian mountain tops. Rocks, slatestone steps - ledges, water crossing, steep climbs, mud sections, slime, loose rocks - boulders, daylight and long dark hours of riding back out. Finished with 40 miles of rainy hardtop to home. I like...

Great install video and great product. Loving it already. Grunt and serious bark.

Everything went well followed the Video pout out by Rottweiler and it was almost the same as the video. My mount holes were off by 3/16” on both holes. No big deal. Used a large drill to wallow out the holes into alignment.

Installed this system on a 21', 890R.. Watched the awesome instructional video, prepared the right tools and had the bike up and running in a bit over 3 hours. It was a technical but not a difficult installation. A bit of a fitment issue with the lower airbox holes not lining up but that was just a minor issue. .The only difficulty was getting the velocity stacks reseated on the throttle bodies. I coupled this with the mid-pipe mod. too. You can really feel the mid-range power increase. Much more aggressive sound too.

I got the intake to smooth out the throttle response in low/mid rpms. It is smooth for sure- but the extra power gives it a much THICKER pull from 1k to redline. Im not a loud pipe guy but the fierce bark when you get on it is pretty awesome too. Installed in about 3 hours. Hardest part was getting the velocity stacks reseated on the throttle bodies. Overall not bad though. Performance WAY exceeded my high expectations. Great product Rottweiler crew!

Sounds good....feels good....mmmmm good....
First off I feel much better about filtration as most of what I do is dusty off road nastiness. I was seeing evidence of dirt bypass with the stock setup and that's all gone now. Without question you can feel the power difference especially as you wind it up. Sounds cool too. And that lovely seat vibration.......
Only issue is a slight fitment problem. The lower airbox holes did not line up super well but it was easy enough to get it to work. That's the only reason it goes from 5 to 4 stars. Highly recommend.....

Great install guide. Took me about 3 hours. Quality piece. Midrange seems smoother and a bit stronger. WOT is loud!!! Rode ~200 miles in Moab two days after install with no issues. I highly recommend this intake/filter.
