Anyone had a primary gasket leak a little on theirs? Some oil gathering on the kick stand swivel and bottom on engine?
Most likely it's the stator wire grommet coming out of the left side of the case.
Check front left side ... there is a triangular bracket bolted to the case ... usually the O2 sensor plug is zip tied to it.

Behind (deep) that bracket a single wire is coming out of the engine case via rubber grommet/plug.

Starting from 2016 Indian has changed this grommet to a diffrent design which supposed to fix the potential weeping from there...

Mine (2014) does the same. The right fix would be the upgraded stator assembly ... but since I am way out of warranty (and with 80000 kms on the clock) I am going to improvise...

Thanks! Mine’s an 18, the dealer said it was the primary gasket. I was just wondering if it was common.

I have a 2019 Chieftain Limited 111 TS. Was in NC riding over Easter and mine started leaking in that area also. Took it to Coastal Indian in Myrtle Beach to check it for me. They said the same thing. Gasket leaking. I'm taking it to my dealer tomorrow to have it checked out and repaired hopefully. Mileage on mine is close to 15800.
