Podtronics seems to be the most mentioned.

If you're interested, I have put a Boyer Three-Phase Powerbox up for sale in this months Roadholder (in the 'Bits' section). It's in perfect order but when I fitted the Alton starter to my Commando (c/w the Alton alternator supplied) it became surplus to requirements.

Why didn't you continue to use it? It works fine with my Alton starter/alternator installation; just connect 2 of the 3 wires to the Alton alternator, or connect 2 of the Boyer unit together.
Incidentally, I have the Boyer 3-phase Powerbox on 2 other bikes and have found them to be totally reliable............so far!

Interesting, I did the same with my pod and Alton but while I seem to get full output at high revs it is not equalising the load with headlight until approx. 2200 rpm whilst someone else with the same set up and RGM's own regulator is getting equalisation at just above tickover.
I fitted an LED h4 which uses a third of the current but it only improved things by a few hundred revs.
I'm about to buy one of the RGM ones to see if there's any improvement.

Hi Richard,

I did use it for a while as you described - it did work fine but I had a spare single phase unit thus I thought I might as well use that (it's physically smaller) and pass-on the three phase unit to somebody who could make better use of it.

Nigel,

 Please put the results of your experiment up on the forum.
