Moved this to the Can Am section for you. Take your seat off and check the gas tank vents for a start. Look at the top of the tank they should be right within sight. See if they are sticking open.

Did you spill any oil on the engine block while changing it? It wouldn't smell like gas but you'd get a funky smell.

Yeh, do like RKC said and check the vent. Do you smell it after it has gotten hot and ran a while? Reason I ask is some people say that their gas tank builds up a decent amount of pressure while running and so it may be like RKC said and be fumes coming out of the vent. I've seen a few threads around of people having the same thing happen, but haven't had it happen personally so i'm not totally sure.

Mine did that the other day. but she was running hot, as we where on tech trails and moving slow. once we got into the faster trails the smell went away. and yesterdays ride didn't notice it at all.

must be the added heat that causes more vapors to be released and that's when its noticable.
