I solved both the problems - just wanted to post an update for anyone else who might be having similar issues:

Bike running poorly / stalling out / backfiring at operating temp:

It was the ignition coil after all! Ordered a new coil and replaced it and made a huge difference - Runs better than it ever has and idles perfectly now, stable after using for long periods of time. I was honestly pretty convinced it was a fuel / carb issue and very surprised with the difference after replacing the coil.

Headlights burning out:

Wired a 12v Trailtech AC regulator parallel into the positive lead going from the stator to the headlight and no more burnt bulbs!

Appreciate everyone's advice and input
