Hiya, Just running in my GSXR 1000 K2 & notice a smell of petrol every time the engine has stopped (After a run) is this o.k.? Apart from this everything is just fine, Thanks in advance if you can help.

if you are still trying to break the bike in, I believe it is normal because most of my friends new bikes do that too.
Put your nose to the gas cap and breath in... that's where it's goming from IMO. I noticed it too. The gas expands when you ride from being sloshed around and the cap has a breather to let pressure out, just like cars

Don't just ride... slide!
