I Ride: the road
I also noticed that once the smell would pass, after some hours, if you turned the key and reprimed the fuel pump, it would come back.

Try that, then you'll know if it's the cap.

Same here. Before I removed the charcoal canister, the smell would be so strong it would go through the garage and into the house. Now although the smell is still present, it has subsided a large amount.

Mine started after the canister removal. I pop the cap now for an hour or so during cool down. Seems to be much better.

That's really weird!
Mine never smelled (both Tri and SL). Put the bikes a couple of times into my flat after riding. GF was always concerned but had to admit that they do not smell.

EU version, no charcoal canister. EvoTech caps.
