I have to agree with those saying to check the vent tube for blockage or restriction. Mud can clog the bottom of the vent tube.
Or insect nests. And a pinched tube has to be ruled out by inspection. I've parked my bike in the garage with varying levels of fuel
in the tank and the oder of gas fumes has never been an issue. Even my sons bike is parked in there and between the 2 it never
smells like a strong gas vapor. If it vents to a charcoal canister make sure all the hoses going to the canister are good with no blackage.
It is true that the system must be able to vent fumes to prevent too high a pressure in the gas tank.
