It is nothing to worry about unless it is very strong and constantly present. Then there may be something wrong with the catalyst. But this is uncommon.

You absolutely can take it in early. I took mine in at 5600 miles, because it was right before winter and I wanted clean oil in it anyway. Did the whole 6000 service then, so now that it's spring I don't have to #%&@ with that issue.

This makes sense. Any little bit of sulfur in the fuel will react with the catalyst and will produce the smell.

Thanks for following up! This will help the next owner.

You may have to make the trip back to the dealer to reset the service interval light when it is present in 1k miles or so. But you can plan a day of riding around it if your dealer is a hike to get to.

Doing oil before track would be a smart idea any who i would think. I paid like $240 for the 6k on my 13, oil and filter, check chain, check over entire bike and tech ride.
