Problem with new motorbike

Unfortunately it looks like my new bike is suffering from a common issue with the DL1000's. There a distinct power surge at slow speeds between 2500 and 3000 rpms and a very rough acceleration patch between 3000-4000 rpms. This has happened about 4 times today on slow bends and roundabouts and nearly had me off once. I was going to wait until the 1st service at 600 miles to get it looked at but think it warrants an early visit.

Do a search for surging on the V-Strom forum and there's a lot of discussion about it. Apparently it's hit and miss whether the Suzuki dealer takes it seriously or says "They're all like that".
