Oil Cooler Line Leaking

So a weird thing happened the other day with my 2016 HM SP (5k miles). We were headed down to Arkansas and stopped for the first fuel up when I noticed oil all over the bottom of my bike and the right side of the the rear tire. After some investigation I determined it was coming from one of the steel braided lines to/from the oil cooler where they kind of touch. I had taken the oil cooler off to install and EvoTech Oil Cooler Gaurd and had bent the oil cooler slightly out of the way to get to a bolt, but nothing drastic.

After making it home and calling a few Ducati dealers I found that none had it in stock and it had to be ordered in from the motherland or wherever Duc parts are warehoused. This would lead me to believe it is not a common problem or known issue, otherwise you would think someone would have them in stock.

Anyone with thoughts on this or had this issue? It doesn't seem like the two braided lines touching is enough to wear a hole in one. Did I bone it by gently moving he oil cooler out of the way? Needless to say, it completely shit on the weekend get away!
