PMS is only for idle. It is of no significant consequence once the throttle is opened.

Good article here.

Gas smell coming from between your thighs (gasoline for all you that thought I meant something else) or out the tailpipe? I'm not big on V-twin Mikunis, but if the gas smell is coming from anywhere but the tailpipe, you need to find the leak now. It could be as simple as a float adjustment or even that the crankcase vent isn't attached to the new filter.

You could also be smelling blow by that you weren't smelling before because the old filter did a better job of containing the fumes and sending them back into the motor.

Always 91 but recently read a post on multi purpose lines and how they can mess up what you're fully getting, next time I fill up I al going to the station that runs separate lines and no ethanol.

thought a k&nfilter was suposed to increase air to the carbs,check your plugs and see if there fouled,what octane fuel are you using.
Plug check seconded.

Did you just put in a K&N replacement or did you change the whole housing?
