    How do you disconnect the connector from the purple fan frame clip? I am sure there is a detent. Do you access the detent from bottom?

    Mine is wired wrong. I did think of that option as pulling the top half of connector is a breeze. However, I do want to keep it consistent with factory specs. So, do I need to access the fan frame clip from bottom to depress detent and pull off bottom half of connector?

    It pops right off the frame. I used a small screwdriver between the connectors and the frame and it came off real easy. It is a lot easier to separate the connectors once they are removed from the frame.

    How did you release the male pins to reverse? I can't see how the male pins are held in connector so I can release.

    I used micro flat head screwdriver as mentioned earlier and basically followed the instructions listed in prior post.

    I did the wire switch and ran the Talon to cycle the fan. Now it is running counter clockwise, is that correct?

    From looking at the pictures counter clockwise when viewed from the motor side would be correct.
    Also the pictures show an airfoil style blade. Flow through the radiator will be greatly reduced if rotation direction incorrect even when the vehicle is stationary.

    Pretty disappointed I found that mine was wired incorrectly after it overheated today on my first trip to the dunes. I'm hoping that no engine damage occurred. It was very sunny and I don't no how long the light was on as the dash display is in a terrible location to see when driving aggressively. I'll be in contact with the dealer tomorrow about Honda extending my engine warranty do to they're improper wiring.

    It is real easy to tell just wait for the fan to come on and put your hand in front of the radiator, if it is pushing air out toward your hand then it is wired in reverse. Should be pulling air from the front not pushing air.

    Checked the wiring on my Talon X and it was backwards. I was wondering why I would feel warm air coming up from the front once in a while. I wasn't having any over heating problems but it is still pretty cool here in VT. Reversed the wiring today and went riding but it was cool enough (mid 50's) that the fan never came on. Heat gauge never went above 2 bars. Curious to see if I get any unwanted cabin heat with the fan running in the correct direction. Thinking about hooking up a DC reversing switch so I can reverse fan direction when desired.

    Do you have any pictures of the shifter gate seal?

    Yep mine did the same thing, i was seeing 3 bars on the temp gauge when the fan was turning the wrong direction but after i reversed the wiring and got it going in the correct direction my temp gauge never goes over 2 bars and the fan rarely comes on and did 52 miles on sunday and it was 88 degrees...problem solved!

    I had my first service at the dealer I purchased my Talon. After the service I read the post here and checked my fan connections. The connections were backwards, I delivered the Talon back to the Dealer explaining the wiring issue as described here and they were unaware there was an issue. They searched for the service memo and found nothing. I forwarded to the service rep the service memo shown on this website. I am unsure at this point if Honda or my dealer is incompetent. Several other issues have come up that point to the dealers not being up to speed on these new products.
