In my opinion, it is NOT your fuel filter. If the fuel filter was that clogged, the bike would run horrible all the time. And, if it was clogged like that, I think you would have a different symptom under hard accel. More like a bucking or the bike starving for fuel, long before it would stall.

When my filter finally went downhill the bike wouldn't idle, but ran normally once I got it above 2,000 rpm. After I changed the filter it idled at 900 rpm without any problems.

You didn't happen to jump the starter engagement for the clutch handle did you? That would make the bike think the clutch handle is pulled in and the rev limiter would kick in whenever you try and get on it.

Yes, I've had problems with my bike starving for gas. Last year it was the fuel pump and this year I think it was just some bad gas. It started on a Thursday. Friday, I called for an appointment and they told me to come in on Monday. Saturday evening I went and got some gas and after I filled her up the problem was gone.
