09 K13GT: 2 problems, warranty fix?

Have only a couple months warranty remaining and want BMW to address these, hoping someone knows if they've considered these campaigns or their responsibility to repair. Or had done and can advise what to recommend / ask for.

1) Flat spots on acceleration. Around 4,000rpm, just lags momentarily. Not as bad as my K12GT did but damn annoying.

2) A slight clutch shudder when taking off in first gear.

Thanks!

A normal dealer will say: "That's normal"

A good dealer will say : "That's normal but we hooked it up to the computer to check the mapping...everything is fine. For the shudder,............ give it more gas and be quicker with the clutch"

My dealer said simply, "They all do that."

I got the 4k lack-of-response fix. Unfortunately, it also means that the engine goes to 2k on decel, then very gradually drops to 1k. But, from 4k-5k and a twist of the throttle, it's responsive.

My bike recently got the flat spot at 3900. The dealer did a thorough fuel system clean along with the throttle bodies. everything good now, and using techron every tankful.
#2, very occassionally. no answer from the dealer
