"They all do that, sir" oil leak?
One other thing that happened to coincide with my 2002 DL1000 shutting off while riding was a stink - the stink of oil burning off a hot header pipe. Now, I usually don't believe in coincidence, but in this case I am SURE there is no connection between the two things.
Every time I park since then I get that smell of oil burning off a pipe. There is no smoke from anywhere. I put a piece of cardboard under her today when I parked in the garage, but I doubt there will be any oil dripping. It seems like just a drop burning off, not enough to leave evidence.
So, is there a "They all do that, sir" kind of oil leak on these things? I'll find it if it's there when I get her on the lift, but, what say you all?
