So I did an oil change on my Wr426 last week, got all the excess oil of it to keep it from burning on the exhaust or something of the sort. Now a week later there is strange smell, doesnt smell like a burnt clutch, or burning oil, no smoking, no oil in coolant, no gas in coolant etc the bike runs great no issues at all starts right up 2nd kick. It almost smells like a burnt rubber smell in away, but I'm kinda stumped I checked everything brakes arent sticking disks arent getting hot engine temp is not anything out of the ordinary, overflow tank isnt losing coolant either.

Any input?

You probably got some oil under the motor, and it is baking, along with the other 'dung' down there.
