Default Smells rich

Not sure what's causing this but today I drove the bike o work and at my first red light a guy I work with was next to me and he commented when we got to work I was burning oil. I did notice this morn and my ride home that at low idle I.e. stop signs or lugging slowly behind traffic I can smell what I describe as a running rich motor. After I got to work and had the conversation I was thinking maybe I left the choke on but when I left it was not. On my ride home I def have a rich smelling motor at low idle any thoughts don't remember this last year and I just got it back from service from the dealer?

Woods... I am no mechanic, but my 2005 V92TC with 19K was doing the same thing. I brought it in for a tune up and injector cleaning now it runs and smells great.

Im in Southern Maine.

So what did you have it serviced for? What did they do? I would be thinking you have a dirty throttle body..

I am asking my self the same thing basically they changed the oil, tires, put insp. sticker on and out the door. One thing that I did think of today is I treated it with stable when I stored it. Gonna get a tank or 2 through and go from there. Have you ever cleaned your own throttle body?

Yep right after I bought the bike. I do almost all of my work. It's not that bad.
