New Rider

Hello all. Just passed the MSF Basic course this weekend and got myself a 2010 250. Looking forward to some good times riding around. I did notice after a quick ride around town (and even when the bike is sitting idling for a few minutes) there is a burning smell coming from the front end of the bike. Not a burning oil or the "burned popcorn" smell, smells more like plastic or electrical kind of. Anyone have any experience with this? I know it's a pretty vague description. I just changed the oil (but the smell was there before and after that) and plan on removing the fairings this week to see if there are any wires/plastic melting.
