Shelter pins are for the false tank cover on the GL1000 only...... So that's no help for you...
I saw someone had made the replacement posts for the GL1200, I thought. Molded from plastic. Can't recall if it was here or on ebay.
Almost any material will work, except anything soft like cotton candy, bubble gum, etc.. Just has to stay attached to the cover and stay inside the grommet.
