Engine smells hot

11 posts in this topic

I just had the top end redone on my atv. It smells hot, do you think it would just be some of the oil and sealants burning off the engine or is something wrong. It seems ok and runs good, just smells real hot.

It sould just be the oil and stuff burning off... nothing to worry about. Try using a heat gun to check just in case.

I wouldn't worry about it at first. When my Kawi 750 was new it had that smell also till it burned off. I would just follow any instructions that the rebuilder recommended (run slow, change oil, etc..)

I never thought of trying a heat gun, that's not a bad idea. I don't think it is anything to worry about, but wondered if anyone else ever noticed it or thought the same.

I 've been using a fair bit lately and working pretty hard, the hot smell has started to subside now. I think everything is good now.

    • New ABC / WaPo Poll Shows Drop In Trump Favorability Courtesy Of Aggressive "Oversamples" Jan 17, 2017 3:42 PM   In the month leading up to the election on November 8th, we repeatedly demonstrated how the mainstream media polls from the likes of ABC/Washington Post, CNN and Reuters repeatedly manipulated their poll samples to engineer their desired results, namely a large Hillary Clinton lead (see "New Podesta Email Exposes Playbook For Rigging Polls Through 'Oversamples'" and "ABC/Wapo Effectively Admit To Poll Tampering As Hillary's "Lead" Shrinks To 2-Points").  In fact, just 16 days prior to the election an ABC/Wapo poll showed a 12-point lead for Hillary, a result that obviously turned out to be embarrassingly wrong for the pollsters. But, proving they still got it, ABC/Washington Post and CNN are out with a pair of polls on Trump's favorability this morning that sport some of the most egregious "oversamples" we've seen.  The ABC/Wapo poll showed an 8-point sampling margin for Democrats with only 23% of the results taken from Republicans...   ...while the CNN poll showed a similar 8-point advantage for Democrats with only 24% of respondents identifying as Republicans.
