☆This time I personally need your help....☆
This was a tough decision to decide on. I generally stay behind the scenes keeping this site chugging along. Joe, is the one that gives out the amazing wealth of knowledge he has. I've put an amazing amount of time into the bringing together this website and not to mention have footed the bills a few times. I've kept us hacker free for a damn long time. I never ask much of you guy/gals. Only if we get in crunch time and the site needs a little help. Ive never asked for the ridiculous thousands I have seen another site ask for.. ridiculous is the perfect word. I even removed ads for those that log in, severely cutting revenue. Sites been about helping people, not making money. I feel bad actually doing this.. but I need help. I have gastroparesis brought on from diabetes(20+ years). I've been struggling with this nightmare for over 3 years. Finally diagnosed beginning this year. Look it up. Look up worst cases... that's me. Ive lost 60 lbs since January. 28 days ago the company I've worked for for many years found their dirty lil way to fire me. I was approved for up to 3 days off a week for fmla.. that really pissed them off. So illegally fired, savings drained from medical bills, bad diabetic now with no insurance. I'm in deep shit. That is politely saying it unfortunately. If any of you guys cant help please at least keep me in your thoughts. If this was wrong, me asking for help, my apologies. I'm declining in health fast, and unemployment hasn't came through yet and that in itself is a nightmare. Anyone who can, please donate to the website. This time it goes to help me. Thank you everyone. Again, my apologies for asking. I honestly don't know what to do or where to turn.

UPDATE: THERE HAS ALREADY BEEN A FEW OF YOU DONATING. THANK YOU SO MUCH, I'M LITERALLY IN TEARS AS I TYPE THIS. EVERY PENNY COUNTS. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR BEING THE HEROES RIGHT NOW.

Neither of the above are available. Might be easier to find Hens teeth.

They do become available, you just have to keep searching.

I have the part you need. This cover came off a 1983 XV920. All the 81 thru 83 750 and 920 used the same part. I am in Idaho and will sell it to you for 40.00 that includes shipping to CO. You can reply here or text me 208-416-9123.

Good original Gen I oil filter covers like the one for sale above are really rare!

Without attempting to steal a sale from her838a2, one can quite easily modify the later oil cover from the XV750/1100, dating 1986 onwards. While styled slightly differently, it is a much sturdier item than the original oil filter cover, meaning the ears/lugs for the retaining bolts are unlikely to break off.

You need to drill a new hole for the oil so that it can flow to the head

I do not have a close-up of the cover fitted, but it does not look particularly out of place to me
