Default Phew, its so hot down under in Oz

Gday everyone, I went for a Sunday ride this afternoon and about 1 and a half hours into riding, my bike conked out.. Luckily I wasnt too far from home but I tell you as I was coming back I was sweating like I never sweated before in the searing heat, and its not even summer yet..
Today it reached 41C or 106F, highest temperature for spring since 1982 here in hot old Sydney!
When I checked it, I found out it was the magneto, the coil on the white wire side had melted and shorted. Have any of you guys ridden in such hot weather like ours and got a problem with the coils melting?
