    2005 road king, stage 1 kit, se slip ons, 95 in. cams 28000 miles, fuel injected
    smell gas when walk in garage where bike is stored, gas smell when idle, people behind me smell raw gas out the exhaust
    bike idles a little rough but runs good and no loss of power or fuel milage
    any ideals where to start to find problem or is there even a problem

    Something is not right there. Get a good hi intensity light and look around for fuel dampness. Check the fuel cap seal, crossover line, quick disconnect hi-pressure line etc. You should not be smelling fuel raw.

    I hope that is your problem, it would be the quickest and easiest one to fix.
    A bad cap lets the fuel go out the overflow vent line, that would explain the smell.

    if that doesn't fix it, check the tank vent line. On my 07 street bob the little hose split under the center console cover over the tank. smelled of raw fuel but could never see a leak until I took that apart.
