A friend of mine, a Dyna Superglide owner, was telling me that the chrome oil tank cover isn't necessarily a good thing since it does nothing to dissipate the heat. My bike had one on when I bought it. Question is: If I remove the chrome cover, is the stock black cover that is under there plastic or metal? Also, how is this chrome cover removed? I looked at it last night and can only see one nut between the cover and the engine that is exposed.
Thanks in advance

I do have the chrome temp guage in there. This bike came with a lot of chrome on it (for me, I'm thinking that it may be possible to have too much chrome). I'm in the process of "toning it down some" - more to my taste, and thought that I'd like to see what it looked like without that cover on. I'll take a look at it more closely this weekend. I'll see if I can pull the battery box out (with it's chrome cover) to see what's in there.
Too much chrome is a bad thing, but as in the case of my brother's Pearl White, black, white and chrome don't really go together. So we are trying to get rid of most of the black and go with white or chrome.
