I did exactly the same thing and am now in the midst of cleaning my tank. The scouring of the excess hot oil dislodged loads of scale/crud from further up the tank than the normal oil level.
I have a charlie's/B25 filter in the bottom of the tank and nearly sh*t myself when I saw all the stuff there ( I happened to decide to do an oil change after seeing very black oil)
I figure that it must have wet dumped a bit, I overfilled it and rode 50 or so miles, realised that I'd overfilled it and changed the oil.
The crud is magnetic and using a torch and magnet I can see flakes and stuff in the petrol tank are of the frame.
I'm going to tackle it with a series of bottle brushes, scrapers and steam cleaner with maybe a paraffin gun. I have a borescope type tv thing so I can see. Obviously, I'll take a look at the pump as well.
I was going to junk the charlies filter for an external one, but if I had, maybe the pump would have stopped with all this.
I'd suggest a quick look UP the spine when you have a moment. I suppose it's caused by condensation?
