Ok BCSB'ers, I have another noob question. I've ridden in the rain many times, mostly on my previous ninja 250. Just a few weeks ago I bought an 09 sv650s and I've only put on about 900km's or so. I've ridden twice in the rain, and each time after the ride, I noticed and smelled smoke/steam coming from the front. Has anyone else experienced this? Out of those two times riding in the rain, I've also noticed while I'm stopped at an intersection, that there is a smell coming from the engine area. When I park the bike in my underground lot, I can even see some kind of a fume coming up from the forks/engine area. This has never happened with the ninja 250 and the first time I just dismissed it but it happened again last night and I'm a little concerned.
I apologize for my lack of motorcycle vocabulary but any help/info regarding this matter would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
