Installed Akra S/O...smells like burn plastic!!!!

Hey guys,

So I installed an Akra S/O on my 07. In the beginning when the engine starts to warm up, it smells like its supposed to ( like an exhaust) but when it starts to warm up, it smells like "burn plastic"(no is not the fairings..the smell is coming out of the muffler). The first time I actually let it warm up for a few minutes, white smoke started to come out. I know they say in the beginning that is normal but I never had problems like these when I had my Leo vince.
I haven't rode the bike with the akra yet cuz I have a lot bike parts apart. So its been sitting in my garage for about a month.

So, Is this normal? any akra owners have the same experience? Please let me know.

Thanks guys!
