Question 1993 Kawasaki ZX600 Pick Up Coil Fix?

I'm having a problem with, I think, the pick-up coil, (or points cover, or timing cover or ignition plate...whatever you want to call it), on my 1993 ZX600. It runs great until it gets hot and then it just dies and I have to let it cool down before it will start again. I'm sure it's the pick-up coil and was wondering what fixes you guys may have. Kawi no longer sells this part new and I haven't had much luck on Ebay. This model has the dual pick up. Otherwise, the bike has low milage, about 6,000, and has obviously not been run much. Any help is greatly appreciated.

I was just looking on ronayers.com and they sell it for $129 However most intermittent problems like yours can be traced to increased resistance due to loose or corroded connectors, something I'd always investigate first before dropping large amounts of coin.

Pick up coil is not a common failure -- there's not much to go wrong with them.

Is there a resistance test in the manual to verify the part is faulty?
