Actually, Kirk was an Admiral right up to the end of Trek 4.
No, he stepped down from Admiral to Captain in TMP and got re-promoted sometime before TWOK.
Then why does he have Admiral's strips when he is shuttling over to the Enterprise?
Because he didn't change his uniform until after he boarded the Enterprise. Here's an image where he clearly has Captain's stripes.
