    tony is right. its the cats. they are what produce that horrid smell. get rid of them or get new ones... ill tell u this, for the price of what its gonna cost to get a replacement cat new and installed, you can get LT's and an ORY and install them yourself, if you dont have them already.

    Or he could take it to the dealer and most likely get them replaced for free under the insanely long warranty they have to offer on emissions equipment

    How many miles are on it Bandit?
