690 Enduro R electrical smell???

Hello all, I recently purchased a 2014 690ER, She has about 950 miles on her and I keep getting whiffs of a electrical smell when I stop or pull into the garage. seems like its coming from the left side fairing, I had the fairing off and could not see anything burnt or out of the ordinary,any idea of what it could be?

The main 690 thread is the WUNDERFEST: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=722987

The main 2014 690 thread is here: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=900813

I would suggest you ask in one of those two as that's where the bulk of the 690 discussion is happening.

For me that was my trousers burning on the exhaust when stopping. I put some wrap on it now and all seems ok.

I think it is that hot ass cat in the muffler. I have a wings but haven't swapped it yet. I'm expecting that smell to go away when I do.
