Question about 2001 kawasaki ZX-6R Ninja
Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Initially, "sputtering" at 3K would indicate an air leak and/or a very lean mix; too much air, too litlle fuel. To confirm check the sparkplugs. If the tips are whitish gray, then the lean mix is confirmed.
Offhand, if the bike in neutral will rev past 3K, possibilities are:
Alternately, it could be fuel starvation, check fuel delivery to carbs. Drain each carb and measure / compare the quantity from each bowl.
Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.
