For some time I have been smelling gas when I am parked at a stop light. I am not leaking anywhere I am 100% percent sure and bike runs like a champ. Could it be running to rich? I do have ducks covers and scorpion tips. I tried looking for threads but none related to this issue.

I wondered the same for a while. I have been told here by several it is normal and is the gas tank vent!

It was not the full 07 line up just some of the early ones. Just call the dealer with your VIN and have them heck. If they did it it should have a divit from a punch by your vin if I recall correctly.

ive noticed this gas smell as well just recently after adding an FI controller i thought maybe it was from the little bit of gas that leaked out when i disconnected the hose when removing the gas tank. now im not sure......

I have an 08 and never smelled gas, but with my luck, after reading the threads, I'll start smelling gas. LOL:bigthumbsup: P.S. I do smell crank case oil vapor, but no puking or oil wetness in filter housings, it started just after I installed the K&Ns in the stock filter housings.
