Are Engines sealed in WSBK now?

During Aragon WSBK race an announcer said once season started the engines are sealed . No upgrades, improvements ect are allowed like is done in MotoGP. I hope He is wrong. It is a rule in Motogp that increases costs slows improvements and in some cases dangerous . I heard announcers say MV, Ducati ect where getting new engine parts last year .So I am hoping the announcer was mixing up MotoGP and WSBK rules. The FIM makes rules that help Big Budget teams all th while saying they are trying to help the small independent teams.

Bit more complicated than just sealed engines, depending on how successful you are limits what can be done to engines during the season.

Years ago the sanctioning bodies pulled the same homoligation /fine tuning the engineering boundries and it turned out to be a mess the big manufactures held all the cards actually Honda called the shots . If they would have left rules where all upgrades where allowed when Aprilia was dominant the other manufactures would have came out with there new models the next year and WSBK would have level completion at a lower budget. Making 6 all out Superbikes is cheaper than 500 watered downed Homologation specials watered down and the needing more engineers to bring performance back up to prior levels .
