Hi Anonymous, first check your engine breathing system to make sure it isn't block or restricted causing the crankcase to pressurize. If ok replace engine case main seal. Good luck

SOURCE: oil change on 05 road king
I typed out a Real Long dissertation of how to do this step by step, and all of my tricks. Forgot what the primary oil amount is to refill, don't have access to my manuals. (Gloomy day for an old biker)
Went to find this info, and there's an old Harley mechanic, (Kinda' looks like me!), that has a step by step Video of how to do an oil change on a Road King!
Here it is,

That is allot of oil for it not to be burning blue smoke out the exsaust or leaking..
The bike should be level front to back and side to side when checking it..

Sounds like you need to clean the clutch plates. This is rather unusual on the newer bikes but quite common on the older Shovelhead bikes. Make sure you're using the correct lubricant at the right level in your primary.
The clutch disc can get a glaze on them. We disassemble the clutch and wash the fiber plates with gasoline. Yes, I know gasoline is dangerous to use as a cleaning solvent due to it's flammability. Just be careful as it is the cheapest solvent that will cut the glaze. Mineral Spirits or diesel fuel won't work. Make sure you notice how the clutch plates are postitioned in the clutch basket. The middle plate is usually a spring plate. Once cleaned, lay a piece of fine emory cloth on a flat surface and sand both sides of the fiber disc using a figure 8 motion. Not much, just enough to knock the remaining glaze off the disc.
Now, put the clutch back together and adjust it properly as improper adjustment is probably what caused this to begin with. Back off on the adjustment on the clutch cable. Make it as short as possible. Now, in the center of the clutch pack there is a screw with a locknut on it. Break the locknut loose. Adjust the screw inwards until you feel a resistance. Then, back the screw back out 1/2 to 1 full turn. Lock the lock nut back down. Now, adjust your clutch cable so that you've got about 1/8 inch freeplay at the clutch lever. While you're in the primary, check the adjustment of the primary chain if your bike is equipped with the manual adjuster. Good Luck.
