On some other bikes folks have beefed up wiring from the R/R to the battery (not from stator to R/R)...
maybe that is what you are thinking of?

We discussed that some pages back....

On the 3-wires coming from the stator....Joel has one or more bikes in test that have a resistor added to each stator lead of about 0.1 - 0.2 ohm (IIRC), the idea being to limit the max current from the stator windings thus keeping them from getting quite as hot, and also reducing maximum output of the stator by some amount ... 25W - 50W reduction (again from memory). He did this by soldering a short length of nichrome wire into each lead ...

I don't think he's talked about the results of that experiment....
