That's what it looks like anyway.

BUT looking at pictures of the units on eBay, it does appear you can swap out the fan MOTORS without removing the whole unit. They are held in by three screws to the fan bodies, and I think the screws face outward, toward the engine.

My bike is in the storage unit since we have some heavy storms rolling in this evening, but Friday I'm going to do an oil change on it. I'll look at it in person to see if it possible.

It may not save money, but it would save labor. I'll report back.
It is theoretically possible. But the fan blades are pressed into the motors. So they can't be easily removed from the assembly. Someone on here mentioned using a punch to carefully knock the pin out, swapping the motors, then pressing the fan blade back on.

I would up swapping the whole assbly without removing the radiator. But my bottom.fan stopped again, so something else is going on. I may look at disassembling the old unit just to see how easy it is. If I break a fan, so what, it was already toast. If it's easy enough, I can at least salvage the good motors as spares.
