100 % sure. Batterie is in new. I have measured the outcome voltage of Boyer Power Box while motor runs. Nothing! Tested the Boyer at 24AC power supply it works. Even connected to the Batterie and 24V AC gives approx. 14 V DC load . Today it was late and I didn’t finish my work. 200 Watt Podtronics arrived today thanks Dieter Cordes. Tommorow hopefully everything works.
The 200 watt PODtronic is going to upset your TriSpark.... You will get a miss at 3000-4000 rpm engine speeds...

Been there, done that...

Wait -

If the Boyer works when connected to an AC source, it should also work on the motorcycle. You should be looking at the alternator, not the regulator.
Yesterday was a lousy day and late. Hopefully today I find time for start my norton and measure the alternator Voltage outcome.

Yesterday assembled full battery, try to fire up by Alton starter, rattling noise appears.
Was not sure if this was by reason of battery issue I filmed with Slo-Motion the part called Double gear.
I discover that both parts doesn't run simultan while starting the Alton e-start.
Fired up by kick starting and done the measurment of Voltage. 20V in idle, rising up to 25-26V by little accelerating.
So alternator is fine.
By disassembling the ALTON double gear I found the puks been defect.
I have used 3 of them, all are cutted away in direction of the outer ring.
Not sure if I now put all 6 in? I have written to Maxim from Alton and explained the problem, lets see the outcome.
Keep you informed!
