Sounds like a dying CDI, which cannot withstand high heat.

No there is no way to test a CDI box according to the Shop Manuals I have on hand.
I'm glad to see changing plug helped. Old gas may have played a role too. You must avoid gas with ethanol content whenever possible. Fuel system parts (especially rubber) in vehicles built prior to 1992 will degrade and cause problems. Premium high octane fuel is usually ethanol free. Adding fuel stabilizer whenever you plan not to use your bike for more than two months is an essential precaution. Current shelf life of automotive fuel is 3 months.
