Desperate for help here guys

I own a Diavel AMG which is my pride and joy, it's coddled and loved like most of us do....

Unfortunately, while it was being worked on today the timing cover was broken, this is the small cover on the alternator cover that you remove to pull the alt cover from the crankshaft snout.
The AMG has laser etching which says who the person was that hand timed the camshafts, it's a small detail but i'm gutted mine is damaged and i can't run the bike with it. I'm desperate to make it right, does anyone know if there is an AMG being wrecked anywhere or if anyone has this cover? i would be very grateful if i can replace my broken part.
Thanks in advance for looking.
Please don't move this to parts wanted, it is, but i'd like as many people to see this as possible, i've alrready looked almost everywhere myself before asking here
Thank you.

I guess you checked to see if a Ducati dealer can order a new one?

of course,
The special piece with the laser etching was installed at the factory and no spares were or are available, if it's lost or damaged they can only offer a std blank one.

I've written almost everyone except the pope, who likely has one ina drawer.....

Get a standard one and find an engraver, they should be able to duplicate the font.

That's a great suggestion. I think the chances of you finding a wrecked AMG are slim-to-none.

You can always replace it in the future if you manage to come across one.

I don't understand what you're trying to replace if you want the original with a one off etching on it and also don't want a plain one.

I mean.. How could you replace such a piece with original 1 off etching? Are you asking how to repair it?

My offer still stands, Yo!

Fabrizio signed hundreds of those - this is a custom made one-off.

$412 + PayPal fees and you'll have the most unique AMG on the planet

How about a photo of the broken part? You can TIG weld aluminum and a good welder can weld beer cans together. Don't give up on the orig part just yet.

This is the original piece, mine is broken, i tried to reorder another from Ducati only to find that they don't offer it as a spare part with the AMG engraving as shown, only plain black.
I'm asking if anyone knows where there may be an AMG Diavel being wrecked or parted out, or if someone has bought an engine from one and has the part with no use for it.
Not likely i know but i would like my bike back to original.

It seems that scanning my broken piece and duplicating the laser etching on a genuine plain black one is the most sensible option, i've ordered a new blank one and found a trophy shop that says they can do it. we will see.

Once that is done (or at least attempted) i'll get my broken one welded, i don't want to do it before i get it scanned in case the welding heat damages it.
