Unhappy K1100LT cold start issues

Hi Guys,
Greeting from Sydney, Australia.
Hoping you can assist me.
I'm currently experiencing cold start issues on my my 1999 K1100LT. Symptoms are, when cold, it will not idle fast enough to run and if it stalls it is hard to restart. As the engine gets a bit of heat into it, it improves. When warm it seems to start and run normally. Some research suggests the Coolant Temperature Sensor being the culprit. I'm hesitant to swap it out with a new one, looks like a big job. Any suggestion as to trouble shooting before getting the spanners out? My local dealer quoted me $260AUD for part number 12611341602 (Ouch!)

You can test the resistance between Motronic pins 7 and 14.
