The nut connecting the handlebars to the footpegs is the problem.

It was actually the bike sucking dirt from a recent tail ride, was real dusty. The air filter was oiled properly !!

Sounds like operator error.....
Just because you only ride trails doesn't mean anything...in fact I am leary of buying "trail ridden only" bikes because the owners usually skimp on maintanence. Pull the valve cover and check your valve clearances. Sounds like tight valves to me...my brothers 250f was the same way...cus he didnt keep up on his maintanence.
pull your valve cover....check the clearances...if in spec than pull the carb and take out the pilot jet and blow it out...clean the carb and put a fresh filter on it and give it another go. How long does it sit in between rides? How long do you go between oil changes etc....and what parts did you replace when it "made it over 100hrs" before.
AND BTW how the F does a flat tire make it hard starting? &%$#@! your joking right? and if it "sucked dirt" get ready for some bigger problems than not oiling your airfilter right.
Where I live is some of the dustiest riding you will ever be in...and none of us have problems with bikes sucking dirt..........................

My maintenance is right up there. after the 100 hours a replaced all main bearings and con rod and piston and rings. the valves were adjusted as well.. when i first got the bike my maintenance was poor. with only like 4 oil changes in the hundred hours and only like 10 air filter changes. it ran perfect every single time and i left fuel in the carby for months at a time. I am going to buy a new fuel injected bike. Thanks for the Input and your guys were right. somehow dirt got into the bore and valves.
