Smell of buring oil

A few weeks before I changed my oil, I noticed a burning oil smell. The smell is still there there post oil change. It usually only happens about 30 seconds after start up. After the ride when I let the bike idle and shut it off, there's no smell.

Asides from the area around oil filter and drain plug, is there any other place I should check? I'd rather not have to take it back to the dealer. I'm sure they'll fault it to my oil change (even though it started prior).

clean it real good, then let it run, or ride it and quickly remove the lower 3 fairings. you will find it. there's only so many places it can come from to land on the exhaust. could try checking torque on case cover bolts too.

Hmmm...... you had your 1098 in the vicinity, didn't you?

I guess that explains why there's a coolant on the floor too.
