SOURCE: Honda EMS 4500 Generator - High Voltage Problem

As far as I can tell on the wiring diagram for this generator there is no voltage regulator unless it's incorporated with the auto throttle unit.
To lower the voltage you need to lower the speed of the generator engine. To do this there should be a screw on top of the engine under the tank when your facing the recoil. This screw presses on a arm that controls your governor. Turning it in (righty tighty) will increase rpms, turning it out will lower them. You should see the voltage change on the voltmeter.

Honda es6500 won't start has fire,compression , gas, not voltage at carb, oil light on then goes out when cranking

If you run 12volts to the carb, will it run? I assume since it has no power at carb as you stated, that it has a fuel shut off at carb and will need voltage to activate magnet.

Honda es6500 low oil lamp on engine oil is at upper limt. reset butten did not pop. engtne will not run

If the low oil switch fails, you have to jump the switch for the engine to operate. I have a compressor with that problem. Then either you watch the oil level carefully or install a new switch, which, in my case, requires disassembly of the crankcase.

My Honda ES6500 watt generator keeps blowing 15 amp fuse

Hi there .
In my opinion you should remove the starter and check the starter first . After you remove the starter get a good 12v battery and 2 wires and test the starter . Make sure to not invert polarity . After you touch the wires on the contactor (small solenoid on the side) see if the overrunnig (part with gears) comes out easy and with no obstruction . If the overrunning does not come out you could have a bad contactor (part # 31204-ZA0-003) or a bad starter (part # 31200-ZA0-701) .
Hope this help
