I really don't want to destroy it if I can help it. Is it threaded on, or is it pressed in? Should I just take a hammer and screwdriver to it?

My service manual doesn't show the cap at all. I'm guessing it is pressed in and you can pop it out after you remove the nut. It doesn't appear to be in the way whether you use an open end or socket. Sorry I can't help more than that.

Good Luck!

See the diagram at 2012 Suzuki V-Strom (DL1000) STEERING STEM | MRCycles

Which part are you talking about?

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

GW, I think he is talking about part # 12. The diagram you supplied shows it as one piece; the service manual shows it as a nut without a domed top.

Some older models had a centerless nut. It has been solid for years now.

So it's not removable?

If you are talking about #12 in the diagram, what you call a cap either doesn't exist as a separate part or is the nut. The nut can be removed as most any nut can. You would need to replace it with a centerless nut from an older model, like #12 at 2002 Suzuki V-Strom (DL1000) STEERING STEM | MRCycles on a 2002 DL1000.
