I Need Pronto Help Por Favor!!!

i was out riding with the guys last night at PP1. First Route was great, my bike performed excellent. Second route when I was in 5th at 13k rpm my bike suddenly lost power! I can clearly hear the exhaust make a different tone now. Not like the smooth aggressive sound it used to but a choking sound.
Power is gone! feels like running on 3 cylinders. It will get up but slowly not like it used to, wont put you in the seat anymore, almost like it will spudder its way up on the rpm....btw cant even get it past 120mph.

I am narrowing everything down to a coil going out of range....anyone want to chime in on this?

It sucks to fix things on a nice weekend like this one.

fuel injector coil? you mean the injectors right? lets recap...
1, it revs funny like you can hear the exhaust "pops" thru rpm
2, it idles just fine
3, theres about half the power going thru rpm and gears.

my only conclusion= 1...spark plug 2.... ignition coil
Im pulling those items out soon.

if anyone have other possible recommendation feel free to chime...
