Thanks . But the fan comes on after the bike is running so that’s why I didn’t think it was for the fan but can the fan still come on and of if it’s that??

I broke that exact same wire on my 2013 Sportsman 500, it is a temp wire that turns your fan on, when mine broke last summer I was able to ride about 8miles before my machine shut off. I let it cool for awhile and I was able to get to a main forest rd and get my truck and trailer to winch my machine onto my trailer. I did not know that the wire was broken when I started my ride. Ruined the entire trip. You will be able to ride for several miles before your machine overheats and shuts off, I did not get any warning on my display before the machine died.
You need to get it fixed before you do any trail riding.
Best of luck.
