New owner maintenance questions

Hi guys i have a 2007 z1000 with danmoto gp exhaust ... ive noticed since i got it a few weeks ago , that it always seems to smell rich .. and im also getting some popping from the exhaust ? Originally it was idling at approx 2200 rpm , adjusted down to 1200-1300 . Still smells rich . Also the bike has 19600 miles on it .. where can i find a maintenance schedule for this thing ? Thanks in advance

Does the bike have a power commander? It might actually be running rich.

Well the dude i bought it from said it had one at one time but it was giving him problems so he removed it (didnt really specify , but i can ask further if necessary. .. if figured if it was removed , it would be returned to stock settings ) also ... is a power commander worth it ?

It might be best to talk to a local motorcycle tuning professional who could get your bike in tip-top shape.

I'd look for that Power Commander. Usually putting a pipe on makes the mixture lean, so the fact that yours is rich makes me suspect the PC is still there or your ECU has been flashed.
There are other possible causes as well. A faulty temp sensor can be reading the motor as cold all the time which will make the ECU keep the mix rich.

I'm not sure on the Z1000. On my ZX14 it is strapped to an intake duct. go to the Dynojet site. They have some of the installation manuals posted.
