typically if it's still rotating just fine and not making noise then you can just replace the brushes and it will start charging properly again...

In my opinion those are cheap enough and the job is easy enough to do I'd try the auto electric parts place and if they caused a problem then order the honda ones....unless it doesn't make any difference to you how long it takes to do the job then I'd just go to that link I provided and order them online..
