I just got a 2019 Striple RS 2 weeks ago (brand new 13 miles on it) did my first oil change at 602miles and I smelled gas in my oil. I have never owned a brand new bike so idk if this is normal during break in or if I need to take it to the shop. Also I tried to find something similar in the forum but I couldn't. Thanks in Advance for any help.

I can smell gas in every oil change I have ever done, with little difference in strength. I suggest you compare the smell of your used bike oil to your used car or truck oil, and see if there is a big difference. If not, probably just the normal smell.

Thank you guys... I went ahead and changed the oil one more time after I hit 1500miles, and now it's nowhere near as strong as is was.
