This is a common problem but not on such a "new" bike. I've seen lots of Shovelheads like this. Someone is making a special gasket to replace the o-ring in this situation. I'm sorry but I can't remember who is making the gasket. It is an aftermarket product. Try James Gaskets. I think V-Twin offers a kit that you can machine the case and repair this as well.

Good Luck

2002 Road King FLHR CI, Is Lucas Full Synthetic 20W-50 Recommended for ALL compartments?

You should only run HD Primary Chain Oil in that primary case and nothing else.
Synthetics are never good in harleys since they are ball bearing motors and Synthetics tend to be to slippery making the bearings skate instead of roll.

Oil weight for primary and transmission on 2003 Road King

You could get away with it for awhile, but I would only use oil formulated for the primary chain case, and for that part of the machine, I stick with Harley brand, dont forget , u got clutch plates in there u dont want slipping. For the tranny you wanna use a good grade gear oil (75W-90, 75W-110,75W-140, SAE 190 & SAE 250) .... it'll better handle the torque requirements. I use Redline Gear Oil and shifting has improved noticeably
