It smells like burning...

  1. I noticed last yesterday & tonight, that my bike smells like burning rubber...

    I don't know where it's coming from or why... At first I thought it was only on highbeam, but then I reaslied I could smell it pretty much all the time. I've only riden for ten mins per trip since I noticed, so I couldn't really work it out.

    I THINK it's the headlights. But I can't be sure..

    It's the first itme I've riden it in two weeks too. If that has anything to do with it?

    I know there's MANY variables, but does anyone want to have a guess?

  2. So disconnect you headlight and find out...
  3. I bet you a lanyard it's the regulator ;)
  4. Ok, but if I loose, I have to give you one & I don't have one... Unless you want my manky old Buzz Lightyear one.

    Bonkers, that's easier said than done... I wouldn't even know where to begin!
  5. I'll come round and have a look sometime eh?

  6. Ahhh, my Knight in shining armour :LOL:

    Yeah, cool. I'll give you a buzz next week.
  7. Checked there's nothing stuck in your radiator? Some bugs smell funny when cooked. :LOL:
