Default Engine Oil Overfilling- Honda Unicorn

Recently I gave my Honda Unicorn done 15K Km for regular service at Hiku Honda Bangalore .there service is absolutely crap.
When I got the bike home I saw little bit of blue smoke from the exhaust.. When I checked the oil level with Dipstick then I found that the Oil level is way above the High level marked on the dipstick.
Can some one throw light on the ill effect of high engine oil levels ? How do I now drain the excess oil myself?

This post is a very late reply though.
If you see that blue smoke it means that the engine oil is getting burnt too.You can drain the oil by opening the drain plug that is just beneath the engine mount. See below the foot peg and there you can spot it. Remove it and empty the oil and fill it a fresh exactly to the recommended level (I guess its 1 liter right?), clean the spark plug (it would sure have oil on it) and then restart the engine. Hope this works.
Experts-please do check if what I had written here would work
