If you have checked the stator, rotor and brushes and they appear alright then it is probably a voltage regulator. The honda dealer can run a test and confirm the problem at very little expense. It cost me 25 dollars Canadian to preform the test and it was well worth the money because you cannot return electrical parts and they can be very expensive. Have a great day!

Those voltage readings MAY be normal.
The AC waveform may cause your meter to read inaccurately. You would need to use a TRUE RMS meter to accurately read the voltage.
The siple meters actually read the AVERAGE voltage and then are calibrated to mulltiply it by the "form factor" for a sine wave. OFTEN these generators don't produce a clean sine wave. A square-ish wave will read higher on the garden variety meters.
Compare the brightness of a lamp comparing to when run on your utility.
The frequency depends on engine speed ... yours is running a bit fast...check it under at least half load and if off, adjust the govenor slightly.
