If you don't get spark, and things are getting hot, you have a short leading to the wires.
Switch the coils. If the same side has the problem, there is problem with wires going to the coil.\
You can then run wires from the good coil to the bad one (disconnect existing wires from the offending side).
If bike roars to life, you know the problem.
