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.

On a DL1000, neither the clutch nor the throttle belong entirely to the operator. The clutch, being hydraulically actuated, decides when it wants to start doing something and how fast to do it once it decides to start. The throttle, operating a FI system, reminds me of a very-eager miniature dog, "I think he wants me to do so-and-so. Oh, how I hope I please him!" Those two characteristics are my only operating complaints about the Vee. I'd rather have a Wee clutch and a carburetor.

However, my DL1K6 has for me been free of the complaints many riders seem to have. Part of this I blame on being hard of hearing -- if I don't hear it, it don't bother me. I have 17/43 gearing which was installed when I bought the bike used. I haven't experimented with any other choices. If I did, I'd go to still-lower gearing, 17/45 or even 16/45, because I don't need the triple-digit speeds that I can reach so easily now. At any rate, on level pavement I can ease away from a dead stop at idle, which is around 1200 RPM. I just don't do it that way very often.
