Sram hydraulic lever ratchet cover

G'day.
Before Christmas, while under the influence of a few Coronas, I impulse-bought a set of Sram 1x Rival levers/calipers/hoses/hoods, off flea bay.
I usually stay away from eBay while intoxicated but I got these for a steal, considering the current market prices,

The right lever is missing the gear ratchet cover, it's dirty but in very good condition otherwise.
The seller was upfront and stated in the listing that the cover was missing, so I was aware of that before buying them.



I searched this forum, other forums, Sram technical material, google etc, can't seem to find a part number for it or any for sale, new or used.

Considering all mechanical and hydraulic replacement parts are available, membrane, piston, ratchet, spool, pins, levers, etc, yet here I am, unable to find the ratchet cover.

The circled bit is what I need for the right lever/front brake/rear shifter:


I considered buying another lever already but Sram's mechanical hydro stuff is absurdly expensive right now, like I-can-get-wireless-levers-for-an-extra-tenner expensive,

The shifting works perfectly fine without the cover but you can see in the picture how it ends up without minimal protection for the greased ratched, the cover keeps the hydraulic hose in its slot alongside the lever body as well.

Levers sold for spares or repairs are not available either, anyone able to help with any leads for the cover, please chime in.

TA

Try contacting SRAM directly for the part # and if you're really lucky they may send you the part or provide info on where to purchase one.

Done it already, no reply yet, not holding my breath.

I expect them to say there is nothing they can do and to buy another shifter, considering they are no longer interested in supporting mechanical shifting.

No part number usually means not replaceable on it's own.

The most annoying thing is the used market spares for these things is non existent, no broken levers for sale worldwide? Wtf.

Well, that blows. Try posting in the "Want to Buy" forum and maybe someone has one laying around they want to get rid of. Want To Buy - Bike Forums

Had a reply from Sram, which just confirmed what I suspected all along: we don't really know what you're asking for but we don't have it.

I will make one.
