I've never known an ignition stator, Exciter Coil to be ABLE to over-charge a CDI unit.
The 12 volt battery, rectifier/regulator, electric start and lighting system is TOTALLY separated from the ignition system on your '85 KLR600 & on all '87-'07 KLR650's.
You may dis-connect the battery & the 3 yellow wire connector from the stator, kick start it and test ride it, if you wish.
I'll again suggest that your bike has a failing CDI unit.
Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!
Still riding my 1987 KL650-A1. 84,000+ miles & counting
