For some time now after riding, when I stopped the bike, I would smell something like burning rubber....I could never figure out what it was, maybe seat heater melting the foam? Maybe some grommet or something fell down on top of the cat converter? Something shorting out? I was cleaning my bike at work yesterday, and discovered that the rear tire has been rubbing on the swing arm!! Yikes! The tire is a dunlop 205. When the bike is parked on the center stand, I don't detect any rubbing when manually spining the tire, but there is definately a flat spot on the edge of the tread that is "polished" from rubbing. I also took the wheel off, and can see where it is rubbing on the swing arm. I checked out the wheel removal procedure on the forum, and the rear wheel shim is in place. Any Ideas why this might be happening? I checked for play in the FD, none, bolts all tight on the wheel.
