If your over filled the first thing to do is remove the excess oil, clean everything and see if it still leaks. Many times if an engine is overfilled liquid oil hits the crank and they will leak in places that they usually would never leak and the pressure can force oil past even good seals. Very very hard on an engine to run with too much oil in it.

It's called HondaBond, although Yamabond will work in a pinch . . .

Just kind of curious how much oil is too much? How much extra oil did it take to cause your leak?
