1997 ZX6R Ninja

Good Afternoon

I am unsure if someone can help me on this site. 7 weeks ago I was out on the bike when it started to stutter and lose revs. I put the bike into Kawasaki who changed the plugs, Air Filter, Cleaned Carbs and jets, flushed out the tank, changed filter pipe on the tank, changed the fuel filter, Tuned the bike. This took a total of 6 weeks to carry out partly due to the fact they could not find the fault. On collecting the bike I drove 1000 yards to my garage due to the weather being too bad to road test. The following day took the bike for a run less than 5km. The bike started to backfire, stutter, lose power then cut off twice. I managed to limp the bike back home. Has anybody had a similar issue and can advise me where the fault may lay... At this time my dealer has no idea. The work on the bike has already set me back hundreds and I don't want to keep spending putting parts on and the fault is still there. Very much appreciated if someone has an idea.

Cheers mate. I have a maintenance book for the bike. The problem is that no one including myself can find the problem. I just thought I would put it out to a wider audience.
