What do you stink like? (Fuel, Oil, ???)

Your bike is fuel injected and has a catalyst so you shouldn’t smell. The exhaust will smell a bit after start-up but that should go away once it is warmed up. I’ve never stunk after riding even will older bikes ((my bikes range from 1976 to 2011). Something has to be wrong with the bike.

Do you have any smoke visible from the exhaust? Do the plugs look OK? Is the coolant level OK? Has some installed a power commander and screwed up the fuel mixture?

How long have you owned this bike, how many miles on it?
