SOURCE: starting in damp weather 1993 240 wagon, auto/od, 235k miles

perhaps you need a new cap and roter a new spark plug wire set. they don;t like moisture. also check to see if you have any broken or leaking vacuum hoses. the worse case senerio would be that your head gasket is leaking--at cold temps a little antifreeze will enter until everything warms up and it seals shut due to metal expanding. but since you say it's cold weather only--this probably wou;dn't be the case. good luck.

SOURCE: seems like bike is running rich

The idle problem sounds like an idle adjustment. The surge may be the throttle cable, try spraying a lubricant from the top of the cable and work it back and forth to loosen and release any debris.

SOURCE: not sure why my bike wont start

How long did the bike set un-used? After years, gasoline turns into varnish after evaporation of the aromatic hydrocarbons. I've actually seen a substance like molasses in all the carbs and the gas tank. Take a bowl off of a carb and see what you find. If it has gone to varnish, you will need to disassemble every component that gasoline touches as a liquid and re-build and clean out the gunk. (yes, gas tank too and the diverter valve) This is a common problem.

SOURCE: 86 Shadow VT500 suddenly losing power/bogging down

first thing to do is to check fuel level. you mentioned about 290 miles since you owned it but no fillups. did you get gas from same store? not unusual to pickup trash or water in fuel from conv. stores. with that out of the way, look at your plugs and see what they look like. black and sooty would be fuel fouled and very white or very light tan would be lean. if plugs and fuel are eliminated, it could be the result of a stator coil starting to go south. these will require special tools to diagnose.

Where do i check oil level on a 06 yamaha stratoliner 1900

The dipstick on all the Yamaha XV1900 models is under the drivers seat. To check the level, be sure the bike is in an upright position (off the sidestand) then remove dipstick, wipe, and reinsert WITHOUT screwing it in. Just dip it. Oil level should be between the upper and lower marks. Yamaha offers free .pdf owners manuals if you don't have one to access here:
