This experience is not related to anything already disclosed (to my knowledge)

- I was on a trip to Malshej after lockdown opened, and it was my first ride. I had used the motorcycle sparingly during the lockdown - close to 5 months - but no major usage. As I was on the ride, my fellow bikes noticed there was smoke coming from the left side panel of my bike. We stopped and investigated to find that my rectifier was burning up. We disconnected it and I took it to service to get it replaced. Has this happened with anyone else and what could be the cause for this?

Thanks in advance
