The new 999R's cylinder head has been redesigned to accommodate the larger titanium valves and higher compression ratio. Note that what appears to be hand porting of the intake and exhaust ports is actually CNC-machining; production technology now allows the precise milling and porting/polishing of cylinder-head ports at the factory.
