Bike sounds like its misfiring/sputtering

Hello, im new to the bike world, im into cars but this is my first time being on a bike and i purchased my 06 zzr600 about 2 weeks ago, sounded fine and everything, but over the weekend it started to sound like a wrx with uel headers, it kinda sounds like a misfire and it rides like poop, if anyone could give me information on what could be wrong with it, it would be greatly appreciated thanks guys, btw it doesnt let me post a video so i cant show you what it sounds like
Omur 🙂

Could be dirty carbs or plugs that need changing. Do yo know when the last time either was serviced ?

So you were just low on fuel ?

At least it was an easy fix.

Yeah it was fixed, but i replaced plugsand its sputtering under load now, about 1/2throttle or after, feels like the bike only has like 20hp , under half throttle the bike sounds the way it should, i think it may be a faulty plug i bought at advanced auto

Did you get NGK plugs ? If not throw those things in the trash and get NGK.
