Hope it turns out to be an easy fix for you... always has to be something though doesn't it?

i just got my 01 zl600 back from dealer. I had a performance problem, very sluggish when you pinned it and would only get to about 6000rpm. When I checked plugs and stuff found one cylinder flooding bad.
To make a long story longer, it turned out that one petal broke off the housing. They were V-force so I just switched them back to stock and it worked fine after that.
