I had that type of problem on the busa, it was lack of volume from the fuel pump... drove fine if I was at lighter throttle but on demand it was bucking or simply not moving...

Not sure about the R6, though... any add-ons from factory?

more power at 3/4 throttle than full is 99.9% a lean condidtion.

pop out the exhaust when you let off?

Run it down to Andy at Metric Cycles and have him run it on the dyno. He is an awesome technician with his dyno, and will have your bike completely dialed in when you pick it up. He's also a no-BS type guy, who'll shoot it to you straight as far as repair options and what direction to take your bike's performance.
