  • The Race Tech KTM Bladder Cap Kit makes rebuilding WP shocks easier. The Bladder Cap Kit converts the stock piston type reservoir to a "state-of-the-art" Bladder Reservoir like the factory Showa and KYB's.
  • The Race Tech KTM Bladder Kit allows the shock to be filled with nitrogen with a regular Schrader Chuck.

Bladder Kit
An easy install. Allows for easy shock service as the nearest KTM dealer is 100 miles away. Allows nitrogen charge at my local Yamaha shop. Haven't been able to put time on it so durability and performance unknown. I do expect improved performance over cobble and small trail junk.

Extremely impressed!!! It’s a must buy!!
After months of riding my bike after having it revalved by a well known suspension guy here in NC and the suspension being worse after I got it back, I decided to give the race tech products a try on my bike due to me running there stuff on previous bikes in the past. This is my first time running a bladder on a ktm, but the bladder kit from race tech is a a great addition to the gold valving and rebound separator valve for the shock. Very predictable and very smooth. It also takes out the stiction and harshness that the stock floating piston causes and it’s now a lot easier to service. I also have the front fork gold valve in the non air side and on the air side it has been updated to the glide kit from innteck. Best suspension I’ve had hands down! Race tech knows their stuff. I would recommend anyone buying this kit for a ktm/husq. if you haven’t already done so!

Pays for itself
I've had mine for 2 seasons now and its definitely worth it in the feel of the bike, plush seems the perfect description. But maintanance is where it pays it's self off. No more spanner wrench no more dealer recharge fees. Any body with nitrogen ,a schrader chuck and a pressure gauge can recharge this bladder

WOW!!
I bought this product for my 2015 TC250 and its a night and day difference! The WP shock has a piston in the shock body instead of a bladder which can cause harshness. I installed this, and immediately noticed a difference. Much more plush. Would recommend to all KTM/Husqvarna owners

Serviceable and more plush
Easier to service and a little more plush versus the stock WP piston style

worth while upgrade, believe the hype
I have about 30 hours on one of these bladder kits that was installed when I had my suspension revalved. I just tore my shock down for servicing and was worried I might find the dreaded "beer foam" oil that has been mentioned on the net. Well.. I didn't. Much to-do about nothing. the Japanese shocks run nearly an identical setup, and of the ones of those I have torn down there has been no bladder issues either. One jap. shock was severely neglected, yet again, no holes or beer foam.

as far as ride quality there IS a difference and the shock soaks up the smaller hits with more plushness. there is no question. Servicing is also much easier and won't cost you an arm and a leg since most every ever shop can service a Schrader valve type; 10 bucks for a 150psi nitro fill at my local shop. this is a great upgrade and very worthwhile, there is a reason why tuners across America use them. they work!

Used quite a few of them
I have modified several bikes with them. KTM's mostly...

It allows us to do our own service easier. I think they are well worth the money. and probably saved thousands in service fees over the last ten years.

works good smoother ride and longer service breaks because the oil doesn't break down as much- good value

Will the Bladder Cap Kit work with the stock reservoir tube or must you purchase a RaceTech tube?
Robert B on Oct 17, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Stock worked for me.
Will this work in conjunction with the xtrig adjuster?
ADAM R on Jan 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes as the diameter of the shock reservoir does not change.
On a 18 KTM 450 SXF does the kit include the resevior tube or just the cap and bladder as pictured?
WILLARD T on Aug 19, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This is just the cap and bladder.
