Smell like gas

Just wondering if any who has adjusted A/F mixture screws smells gas? Not talking raw fuel but my pants slightly smell of fuel after a ride. I usually let the bike warm up while I'm putting on my gear standing next to it. I am at a little over 2 1/2 turns out with stock exhaust as that's what it took to get rid of most of the popping. Plugs look fine, at 2 turns I had more popping although the smell was about the same.Bike had cobras on it when I bought it with the screws at factory setting but I really didn't notice it then. Since I have put on the stock exhaust a little over a week ago it has been cold in the mornings requiring longer warm ups, maybe this is all in my head? and this is normal.
