The 544cc SOHC inline-four breathes through re-jetted individual Keihin carburetors with pod filters and a MAC four-into-one exhaust system with a Kerker muffler. A Lockhart cooler fitted to the downtubes draws oil from an adapter at the base of the filter housing. A top end rebuild under previous ownership is said to have included lapping and decarbonizing the valves, replacing the head gasket, and repainting components using an enamel finish. Carburetor synchronization was carried out by the selling dealer along with ignition timing and valve clearance checks. Power is sent to the rear wheel through a five-speed manual transmission and a chain drive.
