Tuning your bike based on stink is not a good idea. You could easily end up with a poor running bike (definitely sub-optimal) and eventually a damaged motor.
The best (and I believe only) cure for the stink is a 900RR exhaust conversion or 4 -> 1 low exit exhaust.
IMO, any other alleged cures are really just different riding conditions, clothing, body shape, windshield options that are more or less prone to highlight the problem.
I have not done the exhaust conversion yet though I probably will. I love the way it runs with Satos, PCIII, and the Dan Kyle map so I'm hesitant to change anything even though I have a nice 900RR header with a Black Dragon custom can ready to install if I decide I'm ready. If I do swap the exhaust, I'll also get a custom map done for it to ensure I'm getting the most out of it. The expense of getting the dyno tune has been a deterrent. I expect to actually lose performance somewhere if I switch from the Satos, one reason I have not done it.
