KTM 790 ADV Shock Heat Shield - NOW SHIPPING!
Keep the heat out of your 790 shock with our heat-shield. A cooler shock improves your suspension performance and extends service intervals.
In order to meet Euro 5 emissions, KTM mounted a large catalytic converter on the 790. 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 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, the effects of shock heat fade are reduced.
Available in High Lustre Silver, Matte Titanium and Matte Black finish.
Consider bundling with our 1 Finger Clutch or Traction pegs to save on parts cost and shipping!
