    Na don't have that problem here. I have a single car garage and it is closed all the time. Never really smell gas, just a faint smell of exhaust for maybe a few hours after parking the kat but thats it.
    It does not matter what you ride as long as it has two wheels and at least one on the ground!

        I only smell a lingering gas smell if I left it running and backed into the garage. It is still very strong after a few hours, but much is gone by morning.

          Have you checked for a gas leak in your bike somewhere ? I had the same issue but found out that my float bowl gaskets were seeping a little. When they got replaced, problem solved. They were not pouring gas, just a little seepage.

                Its not too unusual, if the bike is hot when you put it away the fuel in float bowls evaporates.
                I haven't had problem with Kat as I rarely put it away hot. I do/did with XS650.
                Its worse if you have K & N filters fitted

                  I used to smell gas all the time before I tightened all my carb boots and sync'd the carbs-- then it went away somehow-- and I seafoamed it a few times....

                    I also used to smell gas all the time. My fuel petcock was leaking. I bought a petcock rebuild kit from cyberpoet and haven't had a problem since.

                      Chances are you have a fuel leak either on the bottom of the tank/sending unit or petcock, could even be a slight leak from an overflow do to a sticky float valve or incorrect flaot level or float bowl gasket leak

                        My garage smells like gas everytime I park. I thought it was normal because of the carburation. When I had the Jet kit installed and carbs synced, the smell got better, but it still lingers after a ride.

                          Mine does all the time, I suspect that the sending unit is the culpret in my case.

                            +1 Yes. I can't put a bike away hot without getting some fuel smell in the house. Either leave the door cracked for 20 minutes or so, or let the bike sit outside for a bit before taking it in.

                              that makes more sense, I pull right into the garage and shut it off.
