Ive noticed the last few oil changes that my oil smells a little like gas. Is this normal? Should I be worried? I have an 04 500i auto and always used synthetic oil. Thanks for any info on this!

How long do you let it sit, between rides? Do you turn off the fuel when it sits?

On my 650 I had gas in my crankcase after it sat for some time. It was actually at the shop for a while when waiting for my frame and no one bothered to shut the fuel off. Got it back went for a trip and it was shooting oil/gas out everywhere from the breather. I was happy

You either have dirt under the needle valve or a stuck float. Either way you can ruin your engine if it has gas in it. Change it, find your problem and get in the habit of shutting off the gas after each ride. You might also consider an in-line fuel filter.

All it takes is once man. I didn't shut my valve off once on mine and she flooded out like you're talking about, only a bit worse. My quad ran for crap and smoked like crazy. Change the oil and don't run it until you do champ. wipe out the airbox as well.

Then afterwards, always remember to shut that valve off, ESOECIALLY when trailering it.
