There is a procedure to de-carbonize the cylinder in the service manual.
Holy smoke! This forum should be called The Honda eu2000 forum
I have a basket case eu2000i from some rental operation on the mainland (I'm in Hawaii) that was advertised as 'broken not running'. Got it for cheap, but it was waaaaaaaaaaay worse than advertised and the guy finally refunded me on the auction. He didn't want it back. So saying, the thing if trashed, piston and/or conrod was fractured, I don't remember other than being PO'd at the internal condition; but if anyone wants some obscure parts, give me a holler and if it still has one of those, I'll send it to ya for the cost of the shipping. Be advised it is in VERY bad condition and high hours. But whaddaya expect for free? Merry Christmas!
aloha from Hawaii,
4 pole is typically used on diesels because diesel engine torque typically peaks around 1600 to 1800 RPM.
2 pole is typically used on gas motors because they start to make good power around 3600 RPM and that is usually where their torque peaks. At 1800 RPM most gas motors are barely making any power, so the motors need to be overly large or on a pulley system.
Most generators are direct drive.
If you were just to stick a 4 pole generator in a machine built for 2 pole, got the speed correct (talking about a direct drive here) then the power it puts out will likely be more than cut in half.
I am thinking with the kolher generator in the link that spins at 2,200 its has a pulley and belt system and it uses a 4 pole generator, but has an option for a heavier duty 4 pole generator. It may have a 2 pole generator and the 4 pole option uses a different size belt and pulley.

Never heard of a mod sine wave generator.
Never heard of a mod sine wave generator. By default generators/alternators produce a sine wave. Even my low tech ST head is mostly a sine wave and my inverter qualifies it fine. And only a 5 hz spread no load-full load, it's all in the governor quality, not the fuel type.Now my new Robin/Subaru/Hatz generator has a barely 3kw head and lousy Power Factor. It too, gets qualified by the inverter, but if I load it very much, the electronic pump controller goes into protection mode.
The lighting & grip website has been revamped, but I found the generator page.
Using a DC generator can make sense. One disadvantage of using a DC genset, is that it really must be located near the batteries.
It can be a very bad idea to try to use an MPPT CC, like the FM-60 with its power source from a power supply (like a genset), that can deliver a large amount of current, during Fault conditions.
The FM CCs have a maximum input current Limit -- stated as the total Isc on the input source cannot exceed 80% of the maximum output current rating of the CC. For the FM-60 this Isc Limit is 48 ADC.
If you feel that you MUST do this, try to keep the input voltage to the CC fairly close to Vbat. MPPT CCs do need some headroom for the input voltage, but with a genset, this headroom may not need to be that mush above maximum battery voltage ... and so on.
Have used a DC power supply, feeding an MX-60, but the input voltage was not much above the 48 volt battery bank.
Just opinions, Good Luck, Vic
Another solution, slightly more manual in operating (ok for me, not so for family), would be to use a small, quiet efficient Honda Eu to generate 110 VAC to power a battery charger as a way to add energy into the bank without the generator needing to be sized to carry the whole AC load. I could give that try with my current generator & charger.
