In that it doesn't run like it used to hasn't started up while riding in 95 degree days and after I shut off the bike it may or may not start and sometimes starts a few minutes after I shut it down, at which time it sounds like it is struggling for a few seconds.  The blades spin freely when I spin them manually, and I can't find any troubleshooting procedures in the manual. ,Check the fuse and the temp sensor.,,,

Cooling fan not coming on

First check if the fan does work directly i.e. remove the wires that goes to the fan and run another wire from the battery to the fan and see if it works, if it works than there is a problem to the fan actuator switch fitted around the cooling system.
You may have to replace this switch.

I have a Yamaha 400 big bear and cooling fan won't

Start by checking the fuses... If they're fine the start tracing the wiring from the fan. Look for any burn marks, pinches, etc... If in doubt I'd recommend taking it to a professional. It's really easy to mess things up if your not sure what your doing

Need additional cooling. Is there a accessory fan

The accessory radiators offer 30%more efficient cooling, they are also lighter and stronger than standard radiators.
I know this doesnt answer the fan question, and I have seen computer fans etc fitted , but without a thermostat to turn them on and off, I have doubts about how much they really help, you also need to be concerned with current draw by the fan flattening the battery.

I have a yy250t scooter, it is water cool but the

For the cooling fan, first make sure the cooling system is topped off with coolant. I've seen cases where the coolant was sufficiently low enough to cause the thrmo swith for the fan to not operate (because there was no hot water present to activate it). About the only other culprits could be a bad thermo swith (usually screwed into - or near - the thermostat housing), or a fault with the power that's suupposed to be supplied to the fan (perhaps a blown fuse or corroded electrical connections).
As for the engine quitting, this could be either an electrical issue (bad spark plug or faulty electrical connections to the ignition system), or fuel related (water in the fuel or clogged carburetor jets).

Overheating with 15min

The banging sound in the engine is Pre-ignition aka engine knock and detonation. This is BIG TIME BAD for the motor. It can destroy a crankshaft and piston in no time. And once it punches a hole in the top of the piston then little metal filings run through the entire lubrication system screwing up bearings and the like.

A lot is involved so the best thing is for you to download a service manual and a parts fiche. The manual can give you all the info available on the oil cooling and lubrication system. The parts fiche is a handy aid in parts identification and unit construction. Free manuals can be downloaded at the site below. Yours is 42nd from the bottom of the Suzuki list. The two files are next to each other.
