Warning lights are on.. not sure why

Ok I was riding my '08 250 home from work and it was upper 80's so it was kind of hot. I got home left it in the drive way while I got changed. I started the bike and the high temperature and oil light was on so I shut it off. I pushed it in the garage and put a fan on the radiator, checked the oil level and it was fine. I let the bike cool down for hours only to start it up and both idiot lights were still on! I shut it off and I now am looking for some advice! Anything to look for? Has anyone had this happen and what was the root cause of it?

Well drained and replaced the oil & filter and removed oil screen, cleaned the few pieces of "stuff" from it and started the bike up. The oil and water warning lights stayed on so I shut the bike off. After a few curse words I started the bike up and both lights went off! I guess the oil had to circulate before the sensors registered. So the problem is solved!
