low speed surging

I'm feeling a slight low speed surge when the bike is warming up, like the first few blocks in the mourning. seems to have started about the 26,000mile area. anyone feel this or is it just me, i havent done any engine work since new.

Could it be a tight spot in your chain? The mileage you list is about time for a new one possibly.

Yep, chain quality and tension were my first response.
