Choppy throttle

Right before I put my bike up for the winter I was getting quite a bit of choppiness in my throttle as I would roll off the throttle and then get back on it. The bike would kind chop or jump per se if that makes sense. It just isn't smooth at all. What would be causing this?
I do have an aftermarket pipe and grips but not sure if they have anything to do with it.

I would start with checking your chain & sprocket. It could be to much slack or might be time for a new one.

My buddy experienced the same problem on his zx6r. His chain was super loose and when he tightened it his chain
didn't align right with the sprocket. He replaced his chain and sprockets and said it made a world of difference.

7,000 miles is a lot if the chain wasn't taken care of properly. That could be dirt or improper adjustments.
