2014 yamaha stryker cruiser overheated, lost power, and burned oil a bit.
It has 12k miles or so, woold changing the coolant help, or is it likely a mechanical issue? I'm assuming the cooling system is the culprit as this never happened before and the temperature light came on for the first time ever.
It caught me by surprise on the highway. Years of riding and this never happened, so it's an issue that just happened. It's liquid cooled and also has a fan to help,
I was only riding for about 20-30 mins, I've gone on multi hour rides before without issue.
The oil has a few hundred miles on it and is synthetic, so I know that wasn't the issue.
