Just checked mine with a magnet - a weak attraction compared to the tank but still some, the instrument visor which I added actually shows a greater attraction.

Metal. All metal. I had mine powdercoated black - you can't do that with plastic

And by 'dashes' I'm assuming you mean the big thing that frames your speedo and bolts onto the tank.

What if there were no hypothetical questions?
