Last week you posted you had 140 miles on your bike, so no you don't. Until you can throw two more zeros behind that number you don't even have a clue what is up. Get that out if your head or your next thread won't be "oh I dropped it at less than 50 miles" but "oh, I crashed into the side of a truck and totaled my bike at 200 miles."

As far as your problem, again, as we've told you before, GO TO THE DEALERSHIP YOU BOUGHT THE BIKE FROM or we are all simply guessing on all of this stuff you keep asking about. Could you have an issue with gas leaking? Sure. Do you? More than likely no but we gave zero idea unless someone us physically looking at it, hearing it or riding it. No idea why you won't take the bike back but you're becoming a troll when a 10 minute conversation with the shop will solve all your issues.

My guess is since the mileage is so low you just filled up with gas and spilled a bit or you're riding in hot weather and the fumes are simply venting. It's very normal for a bike to be somewhat gassy smelling vs. a car which won't be at all under normal conditions.

That help?

Mike

Normal to smell a bit of gas... Especially if full tank. If you're worried just swing by the dealer. They'll be a bit less harsh then most guys here.
