I hope that day never comes. When does it happen? After it's to temp? I never smell anything when warming up.

umm...I'm not sure if it's a warmup kinda accumulation.
it's more of when the bike has been ridden around the hood, then you pause at a redlight and its a hot day....and you get the blow-back right in yer nose..............you'll know it when you smell it sir.

It boils down to the bike running rich and the way that the exhaust vents. The 919s run rich. The exhaust vents in a low spot. Variants like humidity, air temp, wind, shield, mods, rider size all play a factor in whether or not you have dreaded disease. For the ones that don't, awesome!!!!! More power to you! for us that do, we have to get creative (and PCIII with a leaner mix didn't fix it) and therefore the low mount option came to be the "Stink Fixxxxxxer".

Just play. Have fun. Enjoy the game.

Well we gotta have lunch sometime soon anyway, Bart. You can ride behind me and tell me if my bike smells like what my neighbors used to do with their dog's poop. Fire!

"the Stink Fixxxxer"....I like that.
I don't mind the stench since I'm the only one that has to smell it.
I don't commute to an office or work at a warehouse or anything like that, but...it would be nice to get rid of the stank at some point. Not a priority for me now.
Though....a low mounted single exhaust would look nice on the 919er.

If only I had the money. I loved tinkering on that bike. I think I wrenched on it more than I rode it, lol...
