Since these bikes are new to me, I don't know if I should be smelling unburnt fuel on takeoff from stop?

As a side note....
When I got the bike, the idle was up to about 1500rpm. Seemed high to me. I put it to about 900-1000 and idles good to me. I saw which adjustment screw was correct to adjust the idle, so I know I got that right and it was smelling before I adjusted the idle.

Any ideas why it is smelling like unburnt fuel?

I don't see any wet fuel on or around the fuel cap.

What year and how many miles on the bike? it might be a damaged fuel hose.

If you resolve the idle and you still smell it I would check the fuel lines- the bike is 10 years old after all.

If you put a voltmeter on your battery you will see that a 900-1000 rpm idle is not so good.

If you put an oil pressure gauge on your engine you will see that a 900-1000 rpm idle is not so good.

If you put vacuum gauges on the throttle bodies you will see that a 900-1000 rpm idle is not so good.

If you put an exhaust analyzer in the muffler you will see that a 900-1000 rpm idle is not so good.

There are reasons why Honda's recommended idle is 1300 plus or minus 50 rpm.

Well, damn. I can't wait until I get my shop manual. Thanks guys
