can you post a pic? if its' a two prong connector, i'd almost bet it's a battery charger. if it's wired to the large wire of the starter. Not how i would have done it but i've seen it done.

You need to replace the turn signal relay, that is the only part that can be sensible to temperature, wirings and bulbs are not affected by low temperatures.

The Valkyrie has 6 carbs and it sounds like one of the carbs is not working properly. When you give it the gas it uses different jets to load the carbs. at cruising speed it may not be pushing enough fuel on all 6 to keep up or one is plugged. First try some Sea Foam or Tecron Fuel system cleaner through the fuel tank and see if that clears it up. If not I would suggest a carb cleaning to get it done.

Looking in the service manual it does NOT appear to have a low oil pressure shut down sensor. I has a low oil pressure sending unit that will turn on a light.

Remove the spark plugs. Using a screw in compression tester, screw the tester into a plug hole and tighten it slightly. Open the throttle and crank the engine about six full revolutions. Record the reading and proceed to the next plug. Do the same on all the plugs, recording the readings and cylinder number each time. That is all there is to it. If you can only obtain a press in type compression tester it becomes a two man job as one person has to hold the tester while the other holds the throttle open and cranks the engine.

Carb Cleaner spray. I suggest you go to the auto parts store of motorcycle shop near you and speak with the counter guy or gal about this for a recommended product. Use according to the directions on the container.

Thanks for your visit today.

Was your valves adjusted at the 12K? If they were it sounds like the tech didn't do the job correctly. If the valves are set too tight you could have bent a couple of valves due to lack of clearance. Also it could've taken that long for evrything to fully heat up, thus removing any needed clearance. Check you compression first. If you have more that 10% difference between the 2 cold cylinders and the hot ones, you've got problems ( probably what I described up top ).

Have you checked the main fuse on the starter solenoid? It is a flat fuse that when it gets old can crack or it just blows . There should be a spare fuse in the solenoid box cover. The flat fuse is only available from Honda dealers. I rewired all my Honda's to common push fuses.

If you have the service manual for this bike it will tell you how much.
