Try some N° 5 perfume in your tank ? Or some "ricin oil" ?

Seriously, no idea, sorry !

Does it smell only when you have ridden it or does it smell when warming up or sitting at idle? Perhaps you have a small exahust gas leak. Also is the vent tube from the tank disconnected?

I would bet your still running alittle rich. My stalling problem was due to being too rich. They reflashed the ecu and I got better mpg and less exhaust smell.

I love the smell of 100 octaine fuel. My daughter came out after a ride one day and said, "Dad what's that smell?". Thats perfume hun. All joking aside, I have no clue.
My bike has been tuned and mapped, I still get that smell.

The smell of a healthy engine.
Remember the good ol' days of big block V8's and 4 barrel carbs? Smell the gas!

The BMW is running so lean the heads are about to melt, good for mother nature bad for the engine. BMW also has a cat so it won't smell.

I can map a brute to smell like nothing, but the surgeing and overheating will kill you. Not designed as a lean burn engine.

Is the hose that vents the crankcase to the air filter housing connected? Mine was left off, I hope inadvertantly by the dealer. That smell was Brutal. I think it was a crankcase vent hose. Bottom rear center of air cleaner housing. Take off right side black cover under fuel tank you can see it with a flashlight.
