Properly Cleaning the air filter should only result in a better running engine.

What kind of "garage" did you take it to. An ATV's reusable foam filter is unlike anything typically found in car. What did they clean it with and how?
Using the wrong chemical can cause the foam to deterierate and lead to FOD in your carb. Did they romve the internal metal core?
Also once cleaned a tacky foamfilter spray should be applied.
What did you "oil" yours with?

This is all something you can do at home. Remove the internal metal core and wipe off if necessary. Clean the filter in warm water and dawn dishwashing liquid. Let is soak, rinse from the inside-out and use some more dawn by hand. Rinse and air dry overnight. Get some rubber surgeon gloves and wear them to work the spray lube into the filter. keeps your hand clean. Replace metal core and install sealing ring.

A clean filter leans your overall mixture. have you made any carb adjustments prior to cleaning the filter? Hopefully not. Try cleaning the filter the right way. Then maybe a new filter. Could anyting have gotten into the carb throat while the filter was off?
