Throttle out of slow 2nd gear corners (sensitivity)

Ok, so I have been a lurker here for a few months now and have decided to get thoughts on this question.

Is there any way to deal with low RPM surge that occurs above idle, but below the 3500 rpm stumbling area of the rpm range. Asking, because this bike is definately throttle sensitive and I am getting smoother and smoother, but at times cannot seem to keep it smooth when coming out of corners without a slight surge. It is mainly when I am taking a 2nd gear turn and beginning to apply throttle as I go through the corner. I have a PC III (currently using Dynojets stock map), tips cut out of the exhaust, secondary's are unknown at this point (bike is still new to me).

Thanks, and have found this site hugely informative, so thanks for everyone's feedback.

It sounds like that second gear corner is really a first gear corner. The DL1000 has tall gearing. Many riders like to change from the stock 17/41 sprockets to 17/43 or even 16/43.
Either the rough spot has to be cleaned up or the revs have to be kept up, rider's choice.
1500rpm is too low to have the clutch completely engaged. 2500 is about the minimum, even for a bike without a lean stumble.
Marty, your profile says no Strom yet. What do you have?
