yes, too much can be bad
don't want the bottom end dragging through an oil bath
+ uses more fuel
best to pull the sump plug & drain out some & start again
pretty easy

I have overfilled by a litre sometimes, oil dipsticks have a built in idiot factor, so i dont think it would be to bad, but you never know, be interesting to see how much space there is beteen the bottom of crank, and level of oil.
