melting plastic

Alright, so i recently changed my throttle cables, the suffered rash from a spill in a turn. Took off the airbox and everything, swapped them out. replaced everything, started it up, sounded fine, smelled fine, ran fine. it hasn't been ran since that first job, about a month.

I put it up on stands this weekend to swap the front tire, figured i'd grease the chain to. Started it up, let it warm up, and started to notice a smell. Smells like overheated plastic... smell seems to be eminating from the airbox area. i have no idea what it could be and don't want to crack the case back open unless i know i need to. anyone have any ideas?

Other symptoms: Exhaust is a little white colored, not heavy smoke. Tested it at room temp. Checked my my oil level (the lights on) and it's up to spec.


I really appreciate your help guys. Thanks a lot.

tear it apart and check your work. its likely the culprit since thats all that was changed. Seems the obvious place to start, as much as I agree about not wanting to take it apart, its the right thing to do.

I can't imagine that anything near the airbox would get that hot to cook. The box sits on top of the throttle bodies, which sits on the block. I'd check other places to see if something got bumped or moved and it sitting against a hot pipe or something. Also check and make sure that no fluids have leaked on to a hot pipe.
