Sounds to me like your problem is fuel delivery. More specifically your carb float bowls are draining faster than your petcock can refil them. Try removing the tank, cleaning out the petcock and running some fresh gas through. Another thing you might want to check is to pull the float bowls and make sure the floats are not getting stuck in the up position.

As for the oil the only thing I can think of is that the overflow on some hondas goes into the airbox and when you get on it the oil gets pushed out the breather into the airbox and temporarily clogs the filter. I don't know about 500Ts but there are other honda models where this was a problem.

Is you are afraid you over filled it, drain the oil out and put the correct amount in.
