The engines are sealed for the season you aren't allowed to upgrade the internals


which is why they would change the mapping or the other running gear, aerodynamics - whatever makes a difference

aero updates are limited to 1 per season , I'm not sure what you mean by running gear and Cal has LCR electronics engineers who I'm pretty sure wouldn't attempt to slow down their rider , there is very little you can change during the season nowadays even all the gearbox ratios are chosen and fixed pre season , without resorting to some form of skullduggery I don't see that its possible for HRC to scupper Cals chances , the only thing that could really make a difference is if the HRC electronics engineers come up with something that improves the bike and don't pass that information on , that wouldn't hurt Cal but it would give the HRC riders an advantage over him .

he's not employed by Yamaha, so it's not his place to tell riders if they're allowed in the garage or not.

The report I read said he told him to piss off and never set foot in the Yamaha garage again
