On carbureted bikes it meant that you had a boogered up float or a bad petcock.

On injected bikes I have no idea. Bad rings?

Did you flood the bike reallly bad before? IOWs did it not start for you within a reasonable time?

i just bought so wouldnt know if it was flooded...it had a slip on and one of those power commanders if tuned improperly you think maybe that could cause it gas to get into the oil...

Since it is a newer bike,top end problems are less likely. I would say that the controller is set for too rich of a mixture.

Change the oil and get it to a tuner familiar with the controller. Then change the oil again as often as needed to get rid of the gas smell.

IF you've got it runnin too rich that will also cause it to have a gas smell. As long as it still has good viscosity and still feels like oil should feel you'll be alright... better to be a little rich and go through a spark plug than too lean and mess your motor up... if its a real strong gas smell change the oil, and adjust your fuel, its probably runnin a little rich shouldnt be a serious problem though!

Take out your spark plug and see what color it is. If its flat black its running to rich, gloss black its burning oil, and a whiteish color means its too lean.

Lean, too much air not enough gas
Rich, too much gas not enough air.

Yeah if the oil looks in the least bit milky, change it a few times
