Side Cover Alternative?

The small chromed side cover on the right hand side of my bike (the one with the word "Yamaha" on it) is peeling and looking pretty sad. If need be, I'll ante up the $20 or so to get an OEM replacement, but was wondering if there was any aftermarket alternative out there that might look a little nicer.

I've spent several hours on the 'net looking, but so far have come up empty.

Does anyone know of an OEM alternative? If so, would you be so kind as to direct me to that part? I believe the OEM P/N is 3D8-15423-01-00 (it used to be 3D8-15423-00-00, but has been superseded).

Bevo, thank you very much for the link. Unfortunately, I don't see any of the side covers to fit a V Star 1300, only Raiders, Road Stars, Roadliners, Stratoliners, etc. I couldn't tell if the OEM cover is used only on the V Star 1300, or if it is used on any other bike.
