OK.. So I have an 07 ZX10R... Changed the plugs with the same that were in there... sputtering... dying... backfiring BAD.. put the old plugs back in.. exact same shit... wasn't even having a problem before I changed the plugs.. Did I damage a coil or something?

Well it sounds like one of them isn't firing causing it to sputter and then backfire. Yes either something isn't connected or one of the coils were damaged.

So I got her back apart.. start her up... backfiring.. dying... unplug the left coil while running and she starts purring again.. so thats the bad coil? I mean it shouldnt run better on 3 instead of 4 right?.. APPRECIATE A QUICK RESPONSE... store isnt open late if i can even find a coil that they dont have to order

Yeahr I was going to say if you unplugged one and it ran better then you crossed some wires.
