Default Honda Rubicon runs rough after startup

Was at a friends place today. He has a 2012 (I believe) Only has a 1000km. After some startups give it gas and engine starts to pop and buck as if it was a twin cylinder missing on 1. Shut it off, accelerate and it will run fine. Has been back to the dealer a couple times but it never acts up when it is there.Spark plug was changed within the first month he owned it and made no difference?
What to look for?

Bits of plastic from the tank in the carb or bowl, sits and settles to the bottom, then once it gets mixed up it floats around and does not cause an issue, maybe. Have seen alot of plastic bits come out of the tanks on new machines, and cause issues. Good place to start, take tank off and flush it out, clean the filter/screen at bottom of tank, then check the carb.

Not sure. Sounds like the dealer should take it out and find out why with that low of hours.

Fishing isn't always about catching fish.
Sometimes you just have to take a deep breath, look around, and admire what mother nature gave us.
