I had the same problem on my 2006. but mine started out as a burning plastic smell. ironically, i happened to b on my way to the dealer. they knew what it was immediately and wouldn't let me ride it home. they told me it is a common issue but the factory had not officially recognized it as a recall. anyway, dealer got factory to cover it and no probs since.

I hated to read about your bike fire.

Maybe it will serve as a cautionary tale for those who have procrastinated or even discounted/ignored, for whatever reasons, the several threads describing this condition and what to do about it.

Caveat lector
