Posting Talon Accessory Instructions, @Hondasxs feel free to sitcky.

I've tried to title them for easy ID. Didn't bother with mirrors as I know most people wont spend the money Honda wants for them anyways and its cut and drive on installing them.

Drop a line if anything is labeled incorrectly or isn't showing up.

Added winch instructions. Warning, they have a few mistakes.

5/12/19 Added Skid Plates, Side Skid Plates, Intrusion Bar, Cargo Box and Half Cargo Box

11/09/19 Fixed Windshield Wiper not working

HondaTech, you seem to know more than my dealer. Thanks for posting this info. Maybe you can answer a question regarding accessory switchplate with volt meter. I have that Honda switchplate accessory and the Honda horn kit and horn. The two pin connector on horn kit does not have same connector as the five switchplate connectors. What are the five switchplate connectors for if not plugging in Honda accessories?

Unless they've changed the horn kit from the P1K, it dies not tie into the switch plate setup.

The switch plate is for their light bar, windshield wiper, and whatever else. Usually the switches they use have more pins than necessary to operate the accessory.

If you sense frustration it is not directed at you. If true, shame on you Honda if the Honda Horn kit does not work with your switchplate. Thanks for answering.

Just so I understand. Honda Talon's rocker switchplate kit supposedly includes convenient connectors made for Honda only accessories (which I understood going in). The HONDA Talon Horn and and HONDA Talon Horn kit HONDA accessory which includes HONDA's wiring harness and HONDA's rocker switch is not made for the HONDA Talon switchplate connectors? You have 5 rocker pin connectors and the horn is going to take one of those 5 slots. So, the horn assembly harness should have the connector to connect to one of those 5 connectors, true? What am I missing? If that horn switch and assembly does not seamlessly connect to the harness why pay $150 for something you can get for $30? The ONLY reason I overpaid was for ease of connection.

1000-3,
Talon R
I installed the mechanical part of the winch today and attached some pictures since there are no instructions. Remove the bumper with 6 12mm bolts and 4 hex screws. The top hex screws are flanged. I reused all the original mounting hardware. We will see if it’s installed correctly when we get the real instructions. For now it looks like the on line pictures. Tomorrow I will tackle the electrical. You don’t need any of the accessory bumpers. I did order the aluminum one but it won’t be available for a month so the stock will have to do for now. I added the roller and stopper. I did have to buy 4 m8 1.25 flange nuts. I’ll post the electrical tomorrow, unless life gets in the way.

Let me do some digging on what the switch panel and horn entails. The P1K horn I belive had it's own button for placement near the steering wheel. The Talon may be different, I haven't had time to look at much of the accessories. Everyone we've sold so far has left with their stuff still in boxes or with none at all.
