Re: Oil change. Old oil smells like fuel???
the only things i can think of are rings. this will cause blow-by. but, you should see some grey smoke during riding after giving it a lot of throttle and backing off.
maybe you have a valve stuck open or a weak valve spring. that's why a quick compression test would help a diagnosis.
I had a similar experience with my most recent oil change.
I will be getting the bike out of storage next month and will be starting diag. If I get a good answer, I will let you know.
