Hi! I strongly suggest that you have an engine oil change. This may be the cause of the smell. Hope this helps and have a good one!

Have u had the tailpipe probed to see what the HC (hydrcarbons, which is unburned fuel) levels are, is it a rich mixture? When an engine runs rich u can smell it, have been riding for 40 years know this 1st hand, also tighten up the exhaust flanges at the exhaust port outlet, they tend to loosen up and leak.

    NO NEED TO REPACK THE EXHAUST FLANGES, JUST CHECK/TIGHTEN THE NUTS/BOLTS ON EACH OF THE EXHAUST HEAD PIPE RETAINER RING.

Hi,
I think you should check your top plate bolts mine were loose and one cold day after i just filled the tank fuel actually leaked out of the seal torque the bolts to 20 in.lbs and i had the faint smell of fuel too now its gone.

Check and let me know.
Thanks.
