Man, an oil post first off. Get ready for a flood of opinions on this one. I'd look for a dirt in the carburetor for the bad running and set the float level so you can jet properly as your dad suggested.

Assuming it ran ok before the wide open run I say you sucked some dirt. Take the carb apart and clean all of the jets and passages.

If it is a 2000 and you have never changed the oil, I hope the previous owner did it. If you are the orignal owner then I wouldnt spend any big bucks. No more than it takes to get to somewhere like a local Chili's restaurant and see if they dumped the friers in the cans outback. You could just use some of that.

If you ran wide open for a long time and now it barely runs I would check the top end.
Why wouldthe jetting suddenly change? How would you mysteriousy suck in dirt if your using an air filter?
Do a compression test. You may have damaged the piston or cylinder. If piston no big deal just put in a new top end.
If cylinder time for re-plate. In either case check the compression.

Is it really hard to start now? Like have to push start it?

Hmmmmmmm it has been doing it for a whole month. Do you think it will go away soon?

If not, and in the meantime maybe you could disassemble the carburetor and slide the jet needle/emulsifier tube out and see if there is any junk behind it. Just a thought.

ossaggp1 has a good suggestion. I would start there.

What does your plug look like? This will give you an indication if it is a jetting issue. You might want to start with a new or cleaned plug so you can get a decent read on it. Ride for an hour or so and check the color.
