If someone does not use a puller for the coils while changing plugs it is easy to damage the coils. An easy check is to see if all 4 header pipes are hot immediately after starting and holding at idle. Are you talking the "outside air temp" sensor or the "air box" temp sensor? The first doesn't matter much of course.
Welcome to the site. If your serious about the bike, make a friend who has either a motoscan set up or a GS911 to read the bike computer. Big help.

Can the coils be changed without draining the coolant
I‘m not so sure. There is not much room from the top of the rocker cover to the radiator which may make it difficult to get the coils wholly out of the port. I’m also not sure that the radiator an be tilted forward enough without having to disconnect the hoses.
