Casey... if you have turned your adjustment screw that much...there is no way you should have ever turned it that much...If it were me.. I would take it to a Suzuki professional and let them replace the fluid and set the adj. screws back to stock,,,you have to be a good rider to really notice a lot of difference.. and have a good sticky front tire!! Stop fooling with it!!
Fuel filter dirty? This could be a problem the '85 LTD and the '86 SEI. The fuel filter for those machines are different than the rest. They are for the pressurized fuel system and are a bit expensive. Don't know if mother Honda still has them.
