Question '01 Kaw ZX-6R

I am not exactly sure what the problem is or where it is coming from. It seems to be a problem with power delivery. If I sit at a constant speed/rpm it will start to slow down on its own with me keeping the throttle in the same place. If I sit at 80 it will slowly slow down to 70 then 65 so on and so on. It almost seems as though it is bogging down. I know it could be any number of things. Any input will be appreciated. Thank you in advance.

If power feels normal when you twist the throttle to offset this problem, it might be the throttle side grip slipping on the plastic sleeve. Put new grips on lately?

grips, one possibility.

have you pulled the plugs. should be a good indicator of a problem.
