Overfilled oil change

I have an 86 750, was working great. I change the oil and filter and overfilled with the new oil. Unknowing this, I went for a ride and it worked fine. The next day I noticed a small oil leak under the bike, checked the oil level and couldn't see any bubble. I drained the oil out from the bottom plug and refilled to correct level. Went for another ride and the bike was sluggish, had no power. I quickly took her home and it sure what is wrong. When I designed especially the oil should I have taken the filter off as well? Nooney to take to a mechanic, not sure what to do next.
