Smells like smething is burning

When starting my bike and letting it warm up to get ready to head home from work I started smelling smething burning bt I wasn't sure what it was.. I was thinking maybe a bug was on the headers and as soon as it got hot it started burning it lol. When I got home it was still smelling the same. Any ideas guys on what it might be?

Burning like what? Something bitter, sweet, like burning rubber/plastic?

Look under your bike and see if anything is stuck on your headers. Might have run over a bag or something.

So, what does it smell like. A blow dryer or burning paper? I think it'll be best that you look around your bike for the issue.

Don't worry, it's happens on lots of bikes. I've heard it was normal, unless you just revved and popped the clutch?
