KTM 790/890 ADV - Norden 901 Shock Heat Shield

$89.00 USD

The 2024 KTM 790/890 and Norden 901 require a different heat shield than the previous models. Make sure to select "2024-up models" when ordering!

Keep the heat out of your 790/890/901 shock with our heat shield! A cooler shock improves your suspension performance and extends service intervals.

To meet Euro 5 emissions, KTM mounted a large catalytic converter on the 790/890/901. We're all for lower exhaust emissions but the CAT is located directly under the rear shock. The CAT can be several hundred degrees under normal bike operation and heat from the CAT increases the shock temperature. When the shock oil is overheated, it goes through thermal breakdown. This process changes the oil's viscosity which can lead to increased wear on moving parts and poor suspension performance referred to as heat fade.

Our aluminum heat shield is TIG welded and ceramic-coated. It mounts between the bike's CAT and rear shock to lower the shock's operating temperature. Less heat from the CAT means the shock oil stays cooler, service intervals are extended, and the effects of shock heat fade are reduced.

We've received lots of questions about the 790/890 ADV-R shock failures and the relationship to catalytic converter heat.  Camel ADV is not a suspension shop but we believe there are issues with the ADV R shock's internal parts as well as excessive heat from the CAT. If the problem were heat alone, the S models would be failing too, but they don't seem to be, or at least not in the same numbers.

Whether you have a 790/890 ADV-R, ADV-S, or are running the WP Pro components, keeping excessive heat out of them is critical to good suspension performance and longevity. However, our heat shield will not fix the ADV-R's underlying shock issue.


Available in Matte Titanium and Matte Black finish.

Common Sense Shock Protection

I am big into recognizing and taking action to prevent issues that are simple and easy to address, but a royal pain to fix out in the field. This heat shield falls into that category. It is super-easy to install, and provides some peace of mind in regard to protecting my shock from needing a premature rebuild.

What about the right side???

Easy installation, clean design Works well to limit heat on shock and the left side of bike next to foot pegs….BUT on the right side there is a LOT of exhaust pipe on the right side exposed and cooking your ankle/leg and brake reservoir. Would love to see a product to help with heat control on right side
