No Spark At The Coil ??

I have a 2011 S1000RR, I realized the bike was running on three cylinders, cylinder one was not firing. Found out through a coil tester, that there is no spark from the #1coil, the coil is not bad because I tried multiple coils on different cylinders and confirmed there is something wrong with the power coming to the coil on cylinder #1. Another thing I noticed was the coil was getting super hot! acting like it would melt if i didn't disconnect it.
Notes: ECU checked out and given ok health, all injectors have just been professionally cleaned and balanced, all spark plugs are brand new, tank got flushed and has new gas.

Possible Causes ??
1) Bad wiring harness with exposed short some where?
2) Bad Camshaft position sensor?
3) New Lithium battery causing regulator rectifier to have issues?
4) Cut wires in the back of the bikes harness (Heard tidy tails kits were causing issues with the bike)
5) Stator is doing something funny?
6) Quick shifter making something cut out ?

Please let me know y'alls thoughts and which way i should go first to solve this head scratcher.

With it getting hot like you say, it sounds like a short to ground causing current to constantly flow through it.

Did you check the plug wire going from the coil to the spark plug? I've seen the connection that snaps into the spark plug head break, causing a misfire, and creating heat like that on the wire... Maybe grab another wire off another bike (if they have the same connectors) and see if it makes a difference.
