It is a Ecotech 1799cc. Smoke did smell like burning rubber, and I thought it might be the brake pads as I had new ones fitted about 3 weeks ago. SOmeone else suggested it smelt like the gear box oil burning.
thanks for that. Maybe you can help me with my other issue. If i apply the hand brakke whilst still moving at slow speed there is a clunk niose and it seems to rock the suspension side to side. I have no idea about this
