    Just mounted a set of Lizard Lights on my 08 Ultra Classic, and made sure to use the factory accessory pigtail, as well keep all the wires away from any engine parts. I've been noticing a "electrical smell" once the bike warms up. Anyone had a similar smell or problem. Wiring or lights, all work and look fine.

    Smell is pretty subjective...if truly an "electrical" smell, arcing/contacts burning has a very distinctive odor, insulation and plastics another...myself I cannot "smell" a thing other than you should check the routing of your new accessory and find the source, just be careful about working around a "hot" engine/exhaust in particular.
