Default Rear shock oil leak

I've read it's happened to others here, but how frequent a problem is this? My 2013 has a little over 21,000 miles on it, mostly commutes, and sprung the leak yesterday.

Had an HD friend mention that he heard on one of the Kyle Petty runs there were several Vics with this problem.

Is this a "common" problem with our bikes?


P.S. Thank goodness for that extended warranty I bought!

When mine went out 3 years ago my bike was fairly new. The owner of the shop said I was the third one that year (June of 2013) that he had replaced under warranty.
