In my opinion, pulling the head off with under 10,000 miles will proove to be a waste of time. New head gasket required when head removed...re- assemble and torque down head...put bike together and run it for a bit...then take it all apart again to re-torque the the head.
Compression test tells a lot...but the leak down will tell you more. If it was me, I would do a valve clearance check...leak down test or compression test...and call er done! With that few miles I would think leak down to be single digit as engine is still relatively new! I would base the decision on pulling the head on the results of the the test.
