Hi, any idea why my bv 350 all of a sudden smells like gas after riding today? I noticed it when I got home. I opened the trunk under my seat and the smell was really strong. Any help on this matter is much appreciated!

Probably from your evap canister, which is right under the seat. Did you recently fill up? You may have overfilled the tank a little.
