@Kelv
of course the box itself and sensors are most likely the same but the programming from the 800 would not work on the 1000cc engine.
And If Yamaha wanted they could share Jorge's Data with other Yamaha Riders which they would if it would get another M1 in front of the Hondas but then again there isnt another rider who can ride a M1 like Lorenzo at least until we see if Rossi still "Has it"
next year.

Its been stated this year by many Yamaha and T3 people the differences between the Yami Factory team and Tech3 are minimal at best. A good crew and setup can overcome and easily surpass any lack (perceived) of equipment.

Cal is running great this year because of his crews setup ability giving him confidence. Last year he was terrible with what 7 DNF and a 12th place overall? Nice improvements, but his results would be no different if he was in a factory ride.
