Plugs are fine

Checked the plugs, color is a light grey with no carbon.. So i guess the bike is a bit lean? Will change the fuel lines and connectors next week! Hopefully that will fix it!!

It's probably your plastic connectors. My GSA lobe joint broke during a trip in Death Valley. Fortunately tbarstow was around and he knew exactly what was needed. The other connectors on the side are also those are next. Change them out for the metal ones and need think about it again.

Laugh Fuel Lines

My 01 did the exact same thing. After riding I smelled like gasoline. i found the crimped on connector loose where the upper hose connects to the tank. While riding the wind would catch the seeping fuel & mist it on me. You can reach the down the right side of the tank from the front & touch the ends of the fuel lines. If your fingers smell of gas you found your problem. Simply remove the tank & replace both lines. Discard the crimp on clamps & use proper clamps designed for fuel injection & you will be all set.
