Hey bro, just go to the Vault section and download the service manual, it will help you out on this!
You DON'T have to replace the forks simply because they are low on fluids, and the only place I know of to leak fork oil is around the fork seals. You should also be able to tell if you are leaking fork oil past the seals on each fork leg, it'll be oily around the tube where the seal and the slider tube meet. There should not be any oil there normally.
Depending on your mechanical skills and parts availability, seal replacement can be done in an afternoon, but if you are'nt comfortable doin' it, take it to the stealership service department!
With out knowing any more about your bike, this is my best guess for you!
Good Luck to ya.
