Another question, which way are the fans supposed to blow? When they came on the other day, they were blowing out, toward the front of the bike. Is this right?

That doesn't sound right to me.

Actually they are blowing out the side vents that are angled toward the rear on second look. I think that may be ok? If not then they may need to be turned around.

From the front to the rear. After 2000 from the rear to the front.

Worked on the "big rigs" for 45 years now just riding my Wing whenever I can. Gets cold in Wisconsin.

They blow out the side vents as yours apparently do.

These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.
Thomas Paine December, 1776

Ok then, I'm good to go, thanks.
For the warm air vents lower, which way to toggle the lever to open them? Wearing gloves, I can't tell while riding. The owners manual merely says open the lever but not a direction. I'm thinking up is open, down is closed. Either way, the right knob needs to be open as well, I get that.

It is explained in the owners manual as in the picture below.

Note that the other vents give only fresh air.

Your manual is different than mine. Where yours has labels FRESH or WARM is simply an arrow with points on both ends showing it toggles but doesn't specify between what. Those words don't exist on my manual so I was thinking ON/OFF. That logic was confusing as the knob is used to open or close heat.
This now makes sense, thanks.

The Levers on the outside of each vent go down for warm and up for cool. Mine only seem to work at slow speed, I guess when your going faster the air doesn't have time to heat up.
