increase in fumes?

i've recently noticed a jump in the amount of fuel fumes i've noticed on my bike. especially after my airbox delete as well as boster plug mod. i had the x-pipe mod and gassers exhausts installed in the past and didn't notice any jump in the amount of fumes, but after my airbox delete mod, i really noticed it. don't know if it was the airbox delete or also the booster plug (which i know makes the bike run richer). it's very noticeable to the point where when i arrive at my destination, my clothes really smell of fuel/exhaust fumes. anybody else experience this?

Interesting...
I recently installed the Booster Plug, already have a Remus exhaust which I ride mostly without the baffles. No x-pipe, no airbox delete (German regulations suck).
However since i have the Booster Plug a friend who rode behind me made a remark about smelling fuel. I personally didn´t notice anything, least of all more fumes. Might be coincidence. But as you pointed out correctly the bike does run richer with the Booster Plug. I´ll keep an eye (and maybe an nose) on the subject.

Doesn´t matter what you ride... just ride!

thanks! i figure the booster plug may be the main culprit here. when riding it's fine, just when i'm stopped at a traffic light for an extended period of time where the fumes really creep up and i can really smell the fuel.

smells good though!

This doesn’t sound healthy for you or your bike.

Maybe you should check to ensure all the clamps are tight around your headers/exhaust connection to the Xpipe. Could have an exhaust leak...
