No, you need to push harder to get the result if you add electrical
load. It cannot possibly get harder to spin.

I thought it was injection pulses.

the generator does get harder to spin hence the increased mechanical
effort required to pedal , of do you believe the extra energy created is

Sheesh; if a feller can't take a cheap shot late at night then life ain't
