Well, first just turn off the ignition, second, check your cooling system flow and third do you want an expert advise at cost or just a general direction of the probable cause?

Cooling fan is not working,fan it self is working but when temperature is high it should on automatically

I assume you have checked the fan when you say ITSELF IS WORKING but it does not come on automatically at a high temperature. Check the temperature sensor by shorting across the wires. If the fan doesn't come on then I would suggest the problem is the sensor. If the fan does come on then maybe the sensor is the wrong one.

The oil light comes on only when the outside temperatures are over 90 degrees and I have ridden the bike for over an hour long. Everything seems to run fine and the oil level is good in the sight glass....

I would change the oil and filter, you could have thermal breakdown going on causeing a loss of oil pressure....3.3 qts of Mobil 1 15w30 synthetic is recommended.
I hope this helps.

I had the same bike, there is a fuel sensor under the tank, they tend to go bad sometimes. As for the temperature issue, I'm not sure why it would go blank? I had the same bike, loved it.

I have a 1999 shadow aero and the temperature gauge comes on after about 30 minutes of riding, the light will go off and on if i continue riding. Could it be the thermostat if the light goes off and on ?

Had a simlair problem with Honda ST1300, the fault was a leaking hose between the radiator and overflow header tank. Light would come on when the bike was in slow moving traffic and go off again once the bike was at speed. Worth a look?

The temperature light keeps coming on when it is not even warm

Make sure the system is full of anti-freeze (no air bubbles around head or burp points where you need to bleed air out of the system. If you are sure the system is full then you should replace the temperature sender. They are usually inexpensive and it is probably just giving off a false reading, if you are able to drive the bike without having it overheat .

I have a 2005 yamaha venture royal star and i just replaced the iginition coil on the rear left hand side due to weak spark. The new coil seemed to have a lot more spark (maybe too much). The bike started...

If it wont do anything then it is likely that youve popped a fuse
But it sounds like the battery isnt being charged properly. Make sure the voltage across the batt terminals is at least 13.5v at tickover rising to no more than 15.5v at higher revs

Please mark this as helpful (if it has been!!)
