Quad bike fuel in oil?

Hi guys thought I would ask here since you're such a bunch of clever buggers. I have stopped running it and will take it in but trying to get my head around possible causes. Have a canam outlander 500 that's running great apart from engine light coming on and oil sump over full with what I think is petrol smell?
Could it be a faulty fuel injector?

Over fueling I'd say so yeah the induction side of things could well be dodgy.

Hey thanks Jon should have updated earlier, the bike has been for a service and come back feeling great with no issues, engine light was a headlight relay.
Possibly a victim of over zealous filling and imagination(I hope!).
Perhaps I should have titled the post "Is it me or is it my quadbike?"
Fingers crossed.
