I'm wondering if I didn't get enough of the filter cleaner out and then used way to much filter oil so it was being robbed of air and got too much gas And/Or if me leaving the fuel on was the cause.

I did this whole process in 30 mins.
Seat, tank, silencer, shock, remove throttle cables off carb, loosen air boot on carb, Swing up sub frame (don't remove, just bottom bolts, swing the fender pointing up, tighten upper bolt to hold it out the way), then hot start, unplug TPS, loosen other engine side boot, pull out carb. Remove bowl and your in! Clean and inspect everything in there, check and set float level. Manual is pretty good actually with it.

If you can get it off the bike, you are skilled enough to tear it down... Just watch for little tiny things that hit the ground or go sproing into never never land... cell phone pics as you go are a great way to remember where sh*t went. Wear glasses any time you squirt carb cleaner into a carb passage. 10 times out of 10 it makes a U turn and nails you in the eye! stuff burns...
This is good advice too. This stuff will happen!!!! LOL
I had the most problem getting the throttle cables off and back on the pulley. Take your time, don't rush. Anger and frustration is the enemy of good wrenching.
You will need small flathead for jets and 6mm socket for main jet. The rest you should have in your box.
