Welcome to VTF.
it's been a long, long time (>15 y) since I was last inside an XV fuel cap, and sadly don't remember the intimate inner details, so I am not much help there.

let me encourage you to add your general location to your signature, there are minute differences in some models in some locations which will help us help you,
i.e. 1984 to 1987 Virago was 700cc in USA (rest of the world could get 750)

you will need to know which Generation yours is because there are significant differences in the furniture/body-works in Gens.

Gen-I = 1981 to 1983 was a mono - rear shock only, with different (from Gen-II) sheet-metal, seat, lights, etc.

Gen-II = 1984 to 1999 had dual rear shocks, a 'more-tear-drop' shaped tank, etc.

bad news - most bodywork parts/stuff wont plug-n-play interchange between Gens (G-I to G-II)

good news - most parts of same generation will plug-n-play between models 750-920-1000-1100 etc.
