Okay so I overfilled the oil I guess oops?

I checked the TPS and it reads 17 > 97/98 so I guess that wasn't the problem.

I'm about to drain the old oil and put in fresh. Then I'll check the airbox for oil.
And I resent the comment about missing the "main tool" -___-;

No need to drain it all. Crack the plug and dump some. Re check level with bike held straight up vertical. Did you actually read it right and make sure its over full?

Also I never count on the container amounts to get the level right. I add some and check add some and check.

If the oil doesn't fix it then just take it to a shop. Many reputable ones on the board.

BTW, shops aren't just for "tools", they have the experts that can troubleshoot most issues.

Oil didn't work, TPS read normal, and I didn't see anything in the airbox :/

That would be easier and maybe cheaper in the long run than chasing it out yourself. Could be fuel delivery next. Maybe a clogged filter not letting enough fuel in. Could be a few things.
