Throttle Lag/Poor Torque Feeling
I've got an 06 ZX6R with Two Bros dual exhaust, PCIII, Jumper Mod, PAIR Mod, BMC Air Filter, 190/55 rear tire and Driven Power Up -1/+2. I didn't notice this last season, but when I started riding this season I've noticed that the bike doesn't seem to be pulling as hard until it reaches around 8 or 9 grand, then seems like normal. I don't think it is the clutch because it's not that the motor is revving and the bike isn't going faster, it seems more like I'm trying to pull a refrigerator down the highway and it suddenly gets cut loose at around 8 or 9 grand. Both the front and rear wheels spin freely. The bike almost has 10K miles on it. The only thing I've done was change the oil this season and used Mobil 1 Racing 4T 10w-40 as I always have.
I am going to start checking things like the air filter, plugs, vacuum leaks and throttle body sync, but since it isn't really running poorly like rough, popping or missing and I cleaned the air filter toward the end of last season, I'm kinda at a loss as to where I should start the troubleshooting process for this particular symptom.
