Interesting smell...

Recommended Posts

Goschie
I took the bike out for a commute in the rain the other day and I smelled something weird... Almost like burned mechanical parts? It smelled like it was coming from the front of the motor/radiator? It happened the second time I went out in the rain as well and the smell remains till I park, turn off, etc. No smell when dry. Any ideas? Thanks.

I wouldn't worry about it too much. maybe some road stuff you front tire splashed against your radiator. As long as you find no oil leak and the temperature isn't too high, I would not be concerned.

I got that smell with all the bikes I owned. I think rain hitting hot surface engine parts causes that. Never figured why but I believe it's nothing :)

Mine smells consistently like a wood fire when crap gets up on the radiator
