I have a 2004 Rocket with 38,000+ miles and have never had any mechanical issues. There are others who have though. I don't think it's so common that everyone should be worried, but it is something to be aware of.
Triumph didn't cover any of the cost? I know it's a 4 year old bike, but Triumph has been covering atleast the parts cost for similar repairs and they have an "upgrade kit" that addresses tranmission issues, a replacement lower timing chain gear, timing chain adjuster and other issues.
