There were some early issues with the air box idle valve sticking on the K12GT bikes, but they had that sorted by the K13 bikes.

Some K13 bikes had the hanging idle issues as you described. I believe it was a software fix for those, rather than a hardware issue. Might be worth letting your dealer hook the bike up to his computer and make sure you've got all the latest software installed.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

I had a similar issue with my 2009 1300Gt. When decelerating (usually after the bike is warmed up). and shifting into 1st, the bike hesitates at 2000rpm and then dies. I was on one ride with the owner of Cliffs ( before it became Max). he explored the issue and it was a software upgrade and regular cleaning of the throttle bodies with Techron in the gas every few tankful's and a biannually manual cleaning. Bike runs like new.
