You changed the motor oil and it smelt like gas?

If its got gas in the oil run the other way

Could be a leaking injector, or the motor could be in its way out...

Gas getting into the oil is common on fuel injected bikes that are ridden in cold weather and are ran below normal operating temps.

Thank you I just want to make sure the bike is solid and not any major issues

One of the the original problems on hi-RPM 4 strokes was fuel dilution in the oil. It's hard not to get a little of that when the piston skirts are so short; they rock a little bit in the bore, especially at low engine temps, as dtl mentioned. I'd be a little surprised at having that on a 2017 model, however.

How old was the oil? This may be the bigger question. Oil with a lot of hours on it may have a lot of combustion byproducts in it and possibly a little bit of gasoline. If the oil was fresh and smelled like gas, that's a big red flag.

The new ownership at South Bound seem like stand up individuals! Hopefully they take care of you/situation

If you leave the bike sit with the battery connected for a long period of time, the injectors can flood the bike and cause some gas to find it's way into the oil.

I whip in there about once a week for tires, oil, etc..

So what was the final verdict, and how did you end up with the Honda?

I wasn’t informed that the Husqvarna was in supercross until after I purchased it and I was told I could use the Husqvarna for a street legal enduro and the bike is definitely not practical for street legal or enduro use and I went through the bike and found leaking front forks and oil smelling like gas so I asked if I could take it back and get the Honda they got the Honda ready and told me to come get it. They are the best shop around they really care about what they sell you and make sure you are happy with what you get from them. If anyone needs parts or a bike go to south bound Honda they ROCK!!!

The above may be fact or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting. I am not sure, you have no chance.
