Spluttery cutting out?! F8gs

I got my 09 f800gs in december and ive done 7k miles on it so far, however it seems to have a few problems, its cut out 5 times for no reason, in different temperatures and different riding conditions, but the last few days its spluttered 3 times like its coughing fuel.

1st time at 50mph constant throttle in the dry
2nd time leaning on a left hander whilst accelerating in the dry
3rd time in the damp after a downpour on a left hander

Its in for service on saturday but just wondering if anyone else has had this problem?! Its just turned over 16k miles...

I have not experienced the issue...but from what I have read it's the pump, the filter or both.

I'd do all the simple checks first like clear fuel line to the pump, fuel pump flowing fuel...I'm sure there are things that I'm missing. But plenty of reading on the topic.

Good luck!
