What year also is it a carb model? I suggest you run your fingers on the undersides of your tank,also all petrol overflows from the tank and carbs escape through pipes and out under the bike at the back of the engine,feel all these pipe ends for petrol.Saying that if your tank breathers are not working and the tank is under pressure it may use your petrol cap as a blow hole and create that smell.:smile
