Default Re: 06 K1200GT Exhaust Smell?

All I can say is it's a great bike, but man it sure does stink! It's got to be something in the converter.

It's the Fish-Guts impregnated in the catalyst substrate.................

Default Re: 06 K1200GT Exhaust Smell?

Thanks everyone for your interest in my problem. The best way I can describe the smell is chemical/burning smell.Regarding the thought that the bike is running rich,the computer says that I am getting 50 mpg which is more than the advertised mpg.I was pushing the bike, rolling on coming thru the twisties.Ive put a call in to my local dealer but as yet haven't heard from him. Changing the exhaust system is an option but I would think that would be a BMW responcibility.Headed for Rhode Island this week we'll see if I get any bad looks from the general public.
