strong fuel smell in oil...??

I changed my oil recently and noticed that my oil had a very strong gas odor to it and looked a little more runnier than it should have been...its an '08DX with RH 2into1, K&N topless, PCIII with a map from the forums here...

...what would be the cause of gas in the oil, bike running too lean??

thanks

When I first had my 03 I had the smell and itr went away after awhile.

On the rebuild I beat the piss out of it and never had the smell.

I guess my rings seated pretty good on the rebuild.

I had that issue when I bought my bike. It had a poor tune and was running pig rich. Had it dyno tuned and that took care of it. Was running bub jug huggers and a rev tech dfo tuner.....both are gone in favor of stock.

frequent short rides that don't allow the engine to come up to and remain at operating temparature long enough to burn off the added fuel from start up will cause this phenomenon as well.
