A proper rocker arm end play adjustment and valve adjustment (in that order) will solve that surge problem. It did for my 07 GSA.

Also, checking your hand guard is worth a look.

Just make sure that hand guard is not touching your clutch lever.

I had the same issues you are describing and it was as simple as my handguard having dropped down enough to touch my clutch lever.
