I bought an '05 650L in September and the dealer called to let me know that Honda had sent out a bulletin about not having primed the oil pump when the bike left the factory. They found damage in the top end of mine and have decided to replace the engine. Whether or not you may have damaged your engine under or over filling the dry sump, you might have them look at the cylinder walls etc. to see if there is any damage. They might take care of it no matter what due to the priming issue.

re: oil pump priming issue
An earlier post to my question (the same basically) said that Honda doesn't post all their bulletins on the web. (To find the actual reply, do an advanced search of this site using my log-on name.)

All work is covered by Honda on new bikes, and to my knowledge, new bikes are the only ones affected. Also, (duh!) call the dealer for more info., as they should be the ones to ask. (Sorry for the obvious)
