I Have A 01 Zx 9r I Was Riding One Night And I Ran Out Of Gas....weni Reached To Put The Reserve On It Died Out On Me. I Pulled Over And Tried To Start It All It Did Was Crank So I Got Some Gas Filled It Up And Still Nothing. I Took It To My Garage Took Off The Carbs Cleaned Them Put New Float Needles In Them And Started It Up.....i Synchronized The Carbs Now Its Finally Running, Felt Like It Was Sputtering So I Took It Out For A Ride At Low Rpms It Seemed To Run Ok. But At Mid Range It Would Sputter And Felt Like Was Riding A 250cc. I Checked The Y Connector And Thats In Place Im Clueless As To What Else Could Be Causing A Problem Can Someone Please Help Me Out?!?!?!

Fuel blockage in the line or filter from sucking all the floaties in the tank thru maybe..? long shot, but check if you have alot of flow, it's the only thing i could come up with...

Good question too, i'd say to just pull the tank off, then pull the cut off/reserve valve switch and see if hose screen filters on the 'straws' are plugged up, if they look fine then blow out the line to the filter, if it's blocked that should clear it out.
