Hi.

I've just bought an ST. Been loving riding it the short time I've been on it. I took it to a mechanic today for a road worthy check. The mechanic ok'd everything and so she was good to go.
I took her for a spin and noticed when I was stopped a warm plastic smell like it was melting.
I got home and noticed there is what looks like melted plastic around where the chain is going in to the front sprocket and the chain seems to rubbing on the gaurd. I'm not sure if maybe there is something I can do to fix it it's seems the gaurd is in the right place and the chain tension is good. Anyone else ever had anything like this?

Well i would say the chain is to tight and out of line to melt the rubber slider like that , or the cush drive is worn on the rear sprocket or a bad tight spot in the chain ?
