smells like something is burning...helppp
so yea, today sucked. my custom F/E kit broke and fell off on my 06 and ended getting jammed between the rear hugger and the tire. mind you it had the stock signals mounted w/ it, so it wasn't just some small thing that got caught, it was pretty significant. one of the signals ended up getting melted in half and the turn signal wires were the only thing preventing the entire kit from getting pulled down and spit out by the tire. so it was just stuck in there, rubbing and melting away. i didn't notice it until i stopped and smelt something burning. i ended up yanking the thing out from the hugger/tire and disconnecting the wires and sticking the plate and turn signals in my backpack and continued up my way. i fixed it, mounted it back on and but something is still up. on my way home from work, later in the day, i noticed a burning smell when i was at the stop signs. i got off, smelt around and realized it was coming from somewhere around the rear of the bike, mostly around the rear suspension. i checked to make sure no pieces were still rubbing on the tire, and couldn't really find any other things that weren't ordinary. i know that rear suspension is filled w/ high pressured gas. i'm wondering if it's leaking or something. could that be the smell? i don't know, i can't find where the smell is orginating from, can anyone help or point me in the right direction??? i'm really lost on this one and i'm starting to get a little worried...
