Don't really know myself? Sounds strange? Is it straight off the floor? What year? I did hear of a few problems with the 06 models, but that was in valve train and one of the arms...lower right I believe. Hope it aint nothing major. Do not tell them you race it. Sometimes they (Honda) will say it is your fault it does it just to get out of the warrenty. Saves them money I guess... Good luck.

No, you shouldn't smell any gas in the oil.
It makes me wonder if you have floats that are sticking, and causing gas to overflow.....
