I've smelled something too, but I wouldn't say its a wood smell, it seems to come from the muffler and header area. Never smelled it parked outside, only indoors, it was parked outdoors for three months until the shop was built. I smelled something the first time I parked it indoors.
Remember, the stock muffler also contains a catalytic converter. Maybe really hot stainless steel has an odor. It could be stuff thrown up from the front wheel that has vaporized on the hot exhaust. I scratched my head, a few times, over this smell, I decided if it catches on fire or something the insurance will handle it.
Someone with an aftermarket exhaust might post in with a before and after smell evaluation, LOL
