Usually at 2700 rpm ogn the enhine I am seeing 60 amp in on thre Victorn when the battery banks are depleted past the 85% mark.

Do these values make sense? Are they OK?

Are you running the Mastervolt battery charger off the Honda and only seeing 8A or are you using the generators 12V output to charge and seeng 8A?

Your Honda should easily drive your Mastervolt charger to it's full rated output..
