Well here I go with a nice vague question to drive everyone crazy. I keep smelling gasoline when sitting still on the Wing. It's like the smell is just gently wafting around. There's no leak to be found anywhere. The smell is only near the gas cap. But it's strong when the bike is warm. So strong you'd swear there was raw fuel laying around somewhere. Can't smell it at all when moving, naturally. Runs like a clock, no complaints whatsoever. Just the strong gasoline odor. I'm just concerned that if I have raw fuel running down on top of that hot motor I could be the next human torch. Is there a vent or something that might be acting up?

Probably that large valve assembly in front of the gas cap (sorry I forget what its called) I had one go bad and the fumes gave me headaches until I got it replaced.
