08 High Oil Level

I've been getting a high oil level on my dipstick and though maybe it was the fuel pump so I change the pump out, changed the oil/filter & fuel filter. Went out for test drive and oil level on stick is still high? Like a 1/4" above the high level mark. My rex runs hot at 210 when I'm rolling fast. Trail riding temps are much lower around 180/190. I'm also using synthetic rotella T6, Evans powersport coolant, high flow water pump impeller, triple pass radiator, hunterworks carb kit & UNI air filter with plenum rings, CDI box. Am I going to due damage if I run with my oil level this high? I only put 2.5 quarts in exactly. Just trying to figure out if I have another issue somewhere or if I'm being paranoid. Any reply would be appreciated.

Maybe it wasn't 100% drained.

I'd just drop a bit out. Until I had a catch can, I used to run the 3/4 mark anyways to slow down blow by.
