Running Rich With Flames

Triumph tt600 18000 miles running rich has latest fuel mapping it has just started after a long ride a few days ago i noticed is smells very rich. Also when i change gears & blip the throttle i get flames out the rear can also on the overrun when it rumbles and pops it spits flames.  is this likely a sensor failed or a coil pack etc. there is no engine management light on so very unsure. just started to rack up the miles bit of a pain (does look very cool at night but isn't a good idea riding into a petrol station and cant be good for the bike. Any Ideas ?? Thanks

It could be a sensor,if it was a coil pack (1 of 4) the spark plug would tell you.It could be low voltage as suggested a month ago.
