if i pin the throttle and when i get right around 12,500 RPM to redline i feel a major power shortage it wont even going any faster till i back off the throttle a lil then it climbs. would this be a top end issue or a throttle problem?

Could be your air filter is dirty. Could also mean your bike needs mapping or the plugs are old / worn.
What's your mileage right now?
I don't have your files handy at home, but when was your last tune up / service?

Check your air filter first.
Also, some r6s had issues with the coil packs arcing to the cylinder head. i can also cause an issue.
