  • Unicam® Cylinder Head Design

    • CRF®-derived Unicam valve train features a lightweight, compact single-cam drive and optimum combustion-chamber shape for maximum power at all engine rpm.
    • Twin-sump lubrication system separates the oil supply for the crankshaft, piston and valve train from the clutch and transmission.
