The new cover is made by Continental and has steel threads (similar to screw inserts or bosses).

After baselining the suspension and adapting Macfly's settings linked here.

Let's just say that it's firm, but not as bone-shaking stiff as the standard settings. Had a great afternoon warping the edges of the tires but the front still feels less than planted so I may raise the forks through the triples for a bit more front end feel.

Still feels great every time I get a chance to throw a leg over, and came home feeling like a superhero. Fantastic bike. . . even superior in many aspects compared to the 2012 GS in the garage. Yes, even including the engine, and especially the transmission.
Still missing my MM!
