First of all, I've already read the existing posts/threads on this topic. But still gotta ask.

Get home from riding and the bike stinks of gas. I gotta keep the garage door open for awhile to air it out... There has always been a slight smell but just a couple days ago it has been very strong smelling... About a week or two ago I had a new chain/sprocket put on the bike and I had gone up 2 on the rear sprocket(if knowing this matters). The bike isn't leaking(nothing on the ground or on the bike). Propped the tank up, no fuel in air box either...

Suggestions????

2001 SV650S, 23,XXX miles

p.s. If I'm low on fuel(fuel light blinking), would/could that cause the stank?

No - you either have a leak in your fuel lines or your carbs are leaking. Look onto the motor under the carbs after you ride to see if there is fuel sitting (motor will look wet).

My carb gaskets went out over this past winter so I had the same problem as you when I started riding this spring. New gaskets I was all set.
