    Have you or has anyone thought of using one of them as wind turbine. I know the Suzuki GS series of the 1980s used that setup.. i would think it was a few hundred watts.. but don't know if it needs to be spun too high a rp :idea: m?? any thoughts??

    They most likely require too high of an rpm to put out usable volts. I would think the stator would need to be re-wired and you would need to install some nice powerful magnets on the rotor. But they definitely would not work outright.
