2005 R1200RT, 51,500 miles:
While at idle on my most recent rides I've noticed a burning rubber smell but can't find its origin. There are no other symptoms to accompany it (visual, sounds, computer display, etc.). Any ideas?
Having Problems with your BMW R1200RT/R1250RT? or have some Maintenance and Service questions?

If it only happened the once its probably something you have ridden through and the exhaust is burning it off. Have a look at the front header pipes and under the cat for something that's been incinerated. I once had the smell of fried chicken. Turned out to be a sparrow embedded in the cylinder fins.
