Took my 09 DX in for a 5000 mile service. After the service I smelled a strong raw gas smell every time I rode the bike. After about a week of seeing if it would go away, it did not. I did a little investigating and could see where it was seeping from. Called the dealer, and they told me to bring it in. Turns out it was coming from the front cylinder breather tube. The tech told me they would probably need to clean the metal, and silicone the rubber tube that slipped over it. While it was in the shop for this issue, they told me they found an exhaust leak at the header. Thankfully all this was covered under warranty, and the problem seems to be fixed (no more gas smell). I was curious if anyone else has had this problem or has any insight into it.
