Question about Honda Electrical Supplies
I have measured the resistance main winding 50 hz 9.6 ohms 60 hz 7.8 ohms condenser winding 50 hz 6.3 ohms 60 hz 6.1 ohms is this in spec as there is no voltage generated

SOURCE: runs good but makes no power
The resistance is quite low.
Search Google for method using two 150 watt bulbs in series between your generator and utility power to recharge the rotor residual magnetism soo it will start generating again.

As long as you have continuity through the stator and rotor windings, and no continuity from the windings to the core, you should be good.
If the brush block was replaced due to it being defective, take a look at the diode and capacitor regulator as well. Using a multimeter, the diode should indicate continuity in one direction, infinite resistance in the other. If you get this, then replace the capacitor. If not, then replace the diode, and likely the capacitor as well.

If it is a brusheless generator and you need to flash it do this.
Make yourself a short male to male extension wire that has only mle ends on it. Use another extension wire also. The short male to male cord you will use to adapt your extension wire to the generator. Plug the extension wire into your home power outlet (115VAC). The use the male to male cord you just made to go from the extension wire to your generator. Turn the generator output power switch ON. Wait 2 minutes and LISTEN for a 60 cycle hum in the stator. As the magnetism ge stronger the HUM will get louder. (TWO minutes should be long enough to build up a field in the stator and Rotor.) Turn OFF the output power switch and remove extension wire from the adapter (male to male). Remember the Male to male adapter has power on it if it is still plugged into house power. Make sure to remove the male to male adapter from the estension wire and the generator plug.
Start unit. Turn on output power and apply a load like a drill or a ceramic heater. It should work.
I am with you... I have a hard time grasping the concept that the stator just failed due to non use.
Let me know what happens. Worst case we can go through each of the stator windings checking resistance of the two 120VAC windings and the condensor (capacitance) windings It looks to me like you have already read them out with good results.
Try the extension wire with male to male adapter thing... and please let me know the result.

(1) Measure the insulation resistance between
BLUE lead and the core.
(2) Measure the insulation resistance between
WHITE lead and the core.
(3) Measure the insulation resistance between
YELLOW lead and the core.
(4) Measure the insulation resistance between
BROWN lead and the core.
White / Red = 0.2 Ohm
Black / Blue = 0.25 Ohm
Yellow / Yellow = 0.58 Ohm
Measure the insulation across one of the soldered
terminals of the rotor and the core
Then test across the 2 soldered terminals of the rotor.
Resistance = 1.75 Ohm
NOTE 1 :
Because a diode is soldered to the coil ends at
the terminals, resistance may be measured only
when tester probes touche the terminals in one
combination of polarity. Therefore, if no resistance
reading appears, try checking in reverse polarity.
Diode rectifier test (Lovated between the 2 capacitors)
Orange wire should read to all of the other terminals.
Both Brown wires should read to the Brown White wire (Note polarity)
Those are pretty much the checks that you can do and should reveal where the problem lies.
I think you may have a burned wire / terminal somewhere inside the control panel.
Usually when they just stop working the failures are
1. The rotor (Bad and horribly expensive news)
2. Capacitor wires (Yellow) open
3. Stator wires damaged.
The stators on these units do not usually fail.
