My wife complains about the smell of exhaust while we're riding. It seems to happen at any speeds, but more often when going 40 mph or less. I don't smell anything myself. I have the stock pipes on my '05 V-Star 1100 Custom. Has anyone else had a similar problem? If so, what's the solution?

It may be blow-by oil. Check to see that oil has not accumulated behind the breather and on the carb's and inter most parts where it is dark and hard to see:eek: This oil can drip on hot jugs:D This may be what she smells ? Or don't eat beans before a ride:eek:

I had the same problem with my 09 1100 classic with V&H Classic II slip-ons. Wife told me to fix the problem or she was done riding with me. Sure do miss her.
