2020 RT Front center shock leak


Noticed clear odorless fluid drip down the front of the engine case. Looks like a shock failure. Anyone done this repair? Unsure about access to the top bolt.
EPM replaced a leaking shaft seal on my 1200gs front ESA shock with around 16,000 miles on it.

The repair (with shipping) wasn’t exactly cheap, but I was very happy not to have to buy a new shock.
I got no dash indication of a suspension problem just a fluid leak. Anyone know if the ESI shocks send a warning signal on failure?
