Try sticking it back together with JB Weld or some such epoxy type adhesive, then re-use it ; just don't over-tighten it?

here's a list of where that cover [1L9-11186-00] was used ---> https://www.mrcycles.com/oemparts/parts ... 1186-00-00

appears to be used later on ATV engine valve adj. cover. but as suggested you maybe could JB weld it back together if time is a premium.
I did that with first one of mine (XV) and would have used it but new one arrived before installation.
