Hey everyone

I need some help diagnosing this problem. Newly owned 2000 CBR929RR, had it for about 4 months now. Everytime I ride for any amount of time, I end up smelling like gasoline. It's pretty bad - to the point that my riding clothes can stink up the whole house.

What would cause this? There are no obvious leaks, and I have checked the fuel pressure regulator to make sure its not leaking on the vacuum side ( I also unfortunately dumped a bunch of gas out while checking this, so everything now smells like gasoline). The bike itself runs with no problems, idles good, starts up fine.

The bike itself doesn't smell any worse (more gasoline-y) than any other bike I've ever owned, so I am tearing my hair out on this one.

EDIT: Further research has shown that it does appear to be running rich, it will blow some lovely smoke if you bounce the throttle. Still going to need help on what to play with though, so if anyone has any ideas please let me know!
