hesitation/loss of power

my 13 has been great to me but lately it has some hesitation on acceleration at around 4-4.5k rpm. the bike has been dyno tuned. 22000mi, new plugs about 600miles ago but, i think the hesitation was there before the new plugs. before i take it in do any of you have any ideas of what to look at?

I have the '13 and same; BUT I didn't notice it until after the first valve rebuild around 70k miles; I suspect tech guy bent a plug prong.
