Hey everyone,

I noticed while riding with a passenger I smelt what seemed like burning rubber. Not sure if that's normal I never rode a passenger before. Engine temp was fine everything seemed ok but it smelt. Seemed to come from bellow front seat.

What can it be?

What kind of "burning" smell was it? Oil, electrical, hot metal... each has a distinct smell to it. It Could have been the grease on the chain and sprocket getting hot from the extra tension.

Maybe it was their sneakers melting on the exhaust 😁

If your passenger was on the beefy side and your suspension set soft, could be tire rubbing on fender. Have you looked for evidence of rubbing?
