I've been noticing that the ride seems to be running a bit rich lately. Noticeable only through exhaust smell however. No significant pops or snorts you might expect from a gas rich 'mix'. Is it possible that I have an exhaust leak? I have Vance & Hines pipes on it and nothing immediately visibly wrong. Any suggestions on how to lean the 'mix' (I know, talking carburetors in a fuel injected system. Forgive me, I lack the language) without losing power?

Thanks in advance!

The front jug exhaust is a tough one to get right, I'd start there. New rings might be in order. Add some high temp gasket silicone and tighten. There is an idle adjustment screw behind the air filter housing, in case you might be idling too high. Lastly, check your spark plugs. The rear plug is easier to get to if you lift the rear of the fuel tank with a 2x4, there is one bolt that holds it in place where the tank meets the seat. If you are running a fuel manager make sure your settings or mapping is up to par. Best of luck.
