Nope after my buddy looked it over again and again as did his techs no one could figure out what the issue was said it's nothing to worry about we will agree to disagree on that point anyone else have any luck
I guess there is one of two ways to look at it. A - Just keep riding and then one day the bike shuts off on you in the middle on nowhere, and no cell service available, because something melted through. Or 2 - It's just a smell that the bike has and won;t ever have a problem. I hope for yours and everyone's sake it is number 2.
I have not noticed any sort of odd smells, however i don't "hunt" for problems either. I will keep a nose out on mine.
i to had burning smell for around five ride outs..then it just went away the only thing i did notice was on taking the o2 sensor off the exhaust there is a shield around it to keep water out and there was a piece of tarmac trapped behind it that must have burned itself out over time..also the suzuki gsr 600 had a rectifier problem that would burn out or cause it to set fire this was a recall on the k8 model i think! but i dont want to worry you on that as it may be different on the 750 but its more or less the same engine.. link

I notice this smell you are talking about from time to time. It's almost like electrical, or maybe even some type of sealant. If you put your nose in front of the tank by the gauges you can smell it well. Your guess is as good as mine as to what it may be but my bike only has about 1100 miles on it. After putting on chain lube the last time, I noticed I was getting some overspray on my link pipe. I don't think that's it though.
hey< I did break in oil change with K&N oil filter. Used tin foil over exhaust pipe to keep oil off it. warming up in drive I shut engine down for smell of burning plastic (I had also wired up gps to battery). So quick check of wiring a ok. restarted and figured just new oil filter burning off...something. everything aok.
