Seth - mine started as an on and off fuel smell. I found the leak by pulling the tank back while shining a flashlight down between the tank and the air box.. It was a tiny mist of a leak.
If I were you, I'd renew the quick disconnect o rings and see if the fuel smell persists. If it does you'll need to save up for a fuel pump assembly. Fun, eh?
By the way, the bike is in for ball joints--upper and lower failed.
Still, I do love this bike. Must be a nut.....
