Jerking/Bucking at high RMPs

I have a 2003 ZX-6R 636. I have had the bike from 14000 miles and it has 27000 now...recently the bike has started bucking/jerking at high rpms when I lay off the throtle, fast or gently, anyone else experience this on a 636...It never used to do this before...

There was some chain slack so i tightened it but i still have the jerking/bucking at high RPMs...

Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks. Ride Safe.

I did some more testing today and realized that this only happens in 3rd gear when I am above 6000 Rpms and lay off the throttle.

It looks like the clutch is going. So I ordered a racing clutch kit today.
For now I just shift into 4th and stay out of 3rd above 6000rpms...

First - Welcome here, moridah...

I seriously doubt that your issue is clutch-related... Before you spend more time/money on this track - Are you sure??

Admittedly, I'm no expert, but nothing in your problem description says "clutch" to me...

I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

Yes please explain further into this matter. My bike is currently acting like this and I don't believe it has anything to do with the clutch.
