ok so I have recently just started having a problem with my zx11 when accelerating ill get a couple pops and commentary loss of power and I have no idea why but I suspect its because the carbs are running rich based on the fact that when its running it gives off a strong smell of exhaust but Idk why it would just start after months of riding with a rich mixture.

It actually does both. When I com of the throttle itl pop a little but the last few days I have noticed that after warming it up (its very cold in reno nv this time of year) il go down the road at steady throttle and all of a sudden get a pop and a loss of power then a pick up then a pop and itl clear up and be fine.
A lean condition can pull un-combusted fuel through to the exhaust pipe, which will ignite on the hot exhaust. I know I'm probably not explaining it right, not to mention, I could be totally wrong. I'm sure someone else will chime in later on and make it more clear
Read and follow factory pro's carb tuning guide. It's a bible for carbs.
