Plastic melted to header pipes...
I put down the RR a few weeks ago on the left side. It was low speed making a left hand turn from a dead stop. It was 9 degrees out and the cold tires got me. I picked the bike up and rode the rest of the way home but started smelling something burning. I was less than a mile away so I continued on. I thought it maybe was some oil or something that had leaked out when I went down. When I took my fairings off I discovered that my Throttle Rocker had slipped off and fallen against the header pipes and melted. I was able to pull a big chunk of it off but some still remains and it is plastered on pretty hard. I know I can start the bike, let it get hot again and try to wipe it off. Are there any other things I should try? Am I ok just leaving it and letting it burn off over time?
