1989 VN Calais
I've got a VN Calais that is dual fuel. When running on LPG i have been getting that rotten egg gas smell in the car when stopping at lights or after parking. I have heard this is when the cat converter is about to peg out but to be honest i have no idea what is causing this. Doesn't anyone know what is going on???

Just in case any of the engine modifications i have made are causing it i'll list what i have done. (All other mods are cosmetic........lowered and wheels etc)

2 1/2 inch cat back exhaust
ss inductions cold air intake
genie extractors

On my manual VN. When at lights it smells horridly like rotten eggs. I mean you could almost get sick off the fumes.

Would it still be the cat??
