Default loss of power

Hi, ive a limited amount of mechanical knowledge when it comes to bikes so please bare with me.
I bought a 1999 gsxr 600 srada few months ago, the first couple of rides was absolutely awesome (with only ridden a 125 n 400 the upgrade was superb) But one morning i took it to work, at the end of my shift started her up again 100% fine, opened the throttle and refused to exceed 5000 rpm, 45 mph! idleing shes fine, twist the throttle while she's idleing, fine. Shes only done 6000 miles as she was stored for a few years after kissing the road but fully repaired as of 6 months ago. Ive checked the air filter, the plugs are firing fine and are in good shape. The only way i can describe the fault once hitting 5000rpm is as if she switches to only two cyclinders and splutters as if being choked of air or starved of fuel, any help will be massively appreciated as riding is none existent and the only other mode of transport is a 1.0 litre 99corsa!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! in baby blue!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (my mrs's car)

cheers for your time and many thanks
