There are any number of reasons that could be happening, anything from Dirty Air filters, or a busted/blocked fuel line, to a seized piston or bad spark?
I'd try the simple stuff first, by way of elimination before taking it to a mechanic...
~ Remove the seats and fuel tank.
~ Check Fuel hoses for bad seals, blockages or cracks.
~ Replace the spark plugs and spray some brake/contact cleaner into the connections.
~ Take your Air-Filter out and clean/replace it. (Accessed from under tank generally)
~ If you have access to a Carb-tuner, or similar, attach it to the vacuum plugs on your carbies and tune them up by turning the screws between the cylinders until they all level out. (Check youtube for videos on how to use them)
~ Ensure your exhaust isn't blocked, or restricted. Place your hand at the end of the pipe when running and see if the air flow remains linear up the rev range.
~ Check your coolant level in the resovior and radiator.
~ Drain your oil from the sump plug and replace with fresh oil. Replace Oil filter at same time.
~ If there was a fuel filter on your fuel line, check it is not full of crud. If so, replace or clear it of all crud materiel. (This is a commonly over-looked issue!)
~ Check battery terminals are clean and battery has charge. If you have access to a Multi-Meter this is usually the best way to check. (Again, see youtube for videos on how-to)
~ If you're feeling daring, remove the carbies and clean them using Motul Carb-Clean or any good Brake Cleaner. (This can be a fiddly job, don't loose any screws!)
These are a few things that, in my experience, are the simplest way of self problem solving before you take the bike to a mechanic.
(It can also help save you time and money because the Mechanic will not have to do all this him/herself. If they're any good, they'll appreciate you having a crack.)
Don't be afraid to take a screw or two out and have a look too. You never know, you might just solve the problem quickly and easily yourself and save a few hundred bucks in the process.
Enjoy!

I have a Kawasaki Ninja, ZX6r, 1997 F3. The bike starts great and rev's great when standing. At high rev's its as sweet as a nut. The problem seems to be when riding the bike and the revs are below 4,000....


There are adjustments on carbs for low speed air intake (air mixture screw)find out factory settings and reset that mixture.Sounds to me like those adjustments are out of sink.If so the bike will run very bad from idle to about 1/4 throttle then run great from there up to full throttle.this definitly sounds like carb problem.

Zx6r erratic throttle


Just check on your air ducts. When the bike is staionery it will idle rev and even run well on the dyno, but on the open road the airducts must be in and instadled or mounted correctly

run a can of Seaforam in the tank..purchase from Autozone put in 1/3 to two gallons gas drive it around for at least 10 miles to insure it cleans out the whole carb system.if that doesnt work, check all carb hose fittings when bike is at idle spray some Chemtool B-12 ( also at Autozone) around the carb hoses and manifolds..if idle increses thats your problem. Caution: chemtool is very toxic wear gloves and a mask.

Poor throttle response below 4,000 revs.


The carbs need to be re-tuned for the exhaust. It doesn't seem like like it needs to be rejetted just idle mixtures adjusted. this would be something that a mechanic should do because there are four carbs and they need to be syncronized with each other
