Doesn't sound like it'd affect starting. Sounds more likely to be a noise filter for the alternator to keep the buzz down in the audio systems.

Should be able to get slightly over 14V at 3500rpm. Make sure your battery is fully charged, and run the bike a few miles and see if it will come up. I usually have 14.2V or so at 60mph. Abunch short trips with lots of stop and go, considerableidling, might well cause the voltage todrop because under those conditions the alternator may not be able to keep up with the demand.
