My 1993 GL1500 would not charge the battery at Idle (850)it was the straight 12.4v. Rev it up above 1600 rpm it would charge just fine 14.3v. I was told that is the Honda Way and people have complained about it all the years of the 1500.With my new bike I have a Compufire Alternator and a gell battery. Thisbike has aAftermarket Volt meter and At idle or any rpm it will give me 14.4 volts if the battery is low or just after it starts. Then it will drop back to the 13.5v range. On my original 1500 Ieven changed the brushes in the Alternator and that changed nothing and others here again said it's the nature of the beast and if I didn't like it I should get a aftermarket alternator.Hence the Compufire in this bike...Pirate..
