Ride side cover missing

Hello everyone,

I have parked my Rebel on a street today for couple of hours.
Walking back to the bike, I've noticed that my right side body cover is missing
It is the plastic triangular panel that covers the allen wrench.
I have attached a photo from google with red arrow pointing to the panel. (not my bike).

Im wondering if I could order this anywhere online? or do I have to go to the dealer? (trying to avoid the dealer due to their marked up price).

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you so much

The side covers are only $10.00 or $12.00 from the dealer.
Before you put the new one back on make sure the rubber grommets are seated properly and there are no wires in the way.
Put wax or dry lube on the grommets and then make sure you press in to properly seat the cover.

I would of thought Honda would of fixed this grommet issue.
They must be aware by now many owners have lost a panel because of not seating correctly.

I lost one and I think it was caused by the dealer installing a battery tender and the cable was in the way of properly seating the cover.

Moved the wire and it has been fine ever since.

My Honda VLX had the same way of attaching the side covers as the Rebel.

I bought my first Honda in 1972, a SL 175. The side covers attached just like the ones on the new rebel, Honda has done it that way for a long time.
