Problem with bike.

So, I changed my oil today with the mobile 1 syn moto oil. I took it for a spin after, and it took off real sluggish, but went through all of the gears just fine. I let it sit for a little bit, and when I got back on it, I had some issues.

1 When I rev it up, it sounds like its red lining at 8000 rpms.
2 It wont take off for .
3 When I go throught the gears on it, 8000 rpms is about all I have, without sounding like its going to blow, and the bike just wont go.

It only has 4200 miles on it, and I have never had any issues with the clutch slipping. Any help or suggestions would be great. If not off to Motorcycles Unlimited it goes.

did you do anything else other than changing the oil? Properly filled and not over filled? Did you remove and fairings to do the job and maybe pinched a fuel line?

Yes, all I did was change the oil, and have already checked to make sure I didnt pinch any lines.

Yeah it is backfireing a little worse what it normally did, but with the full race exhaust it has always done it a little. Im going to take the fairings off again tomorrow to see if I can find anything, but if not its going to Motorcycles Unlimited on Fri.

Did you possibly over fill it?
Check your oil level with the bike level, not on the kickstand.

How much oil did you put in it?
The ZX6 only holds a little over 3.5 quarts with a filter change.
If it's overfull it may cause your issue.
If you can't figure it out before Tuesday, bring it by and we'l look at it, no charge.

Any chance you had a rag or paper towell in a place where it got ingested (sucked) into or down the intake - if so I think we might be getting warm.

I was nowhere near my intake. The only way into my intake is by taking the gas tank off, then taking about 15 screws off of the lid. The ram air vent had nothing near it today, and it has a screen to stop big stuff from going in it.

if i were you, the first thing i would do is drain it, and pour in what you always ran in it. Never know, it may not like what you put into it. Some cars/trucks are like that..

just a thought.
