Ok, What you did was just load the engine up on oil, and you have reset the break in on the engine. After the engine gets the excess oil out, it will slow down, this may take a few starts. After that for the next 2 hrs of runtime over 3500 RPM the engine will be using double oil.

Check the throttle linkage on the left side of the engine. Make sure that it is fully back.
