I'm trying to pick up a polished aluminum derby cover for my M8. Online there are allot of 103 covers available.

After picking around online, they appear to be different, however that is from changing the model on the J$P cycle website and verifying the PN, and nothing clearly stated via google.

Any feedback on this?

And, if anyone has a known good condition M8 cover they wanna ditch let me know.

Your M8 has the narrow primary cover which is why the derby cover is different. It's smaller then the ones for the TC bikes.

A 103 cover from a 16' has the same part number as a 17' M8 but going back to 2015 it is different. I compared part numbers on a FLHR on Ronnie's HD parts website. I believe it was 2016 when they started putting the narrow primary cover on all touring models that came stock on the Ultra Limited Low in 2015. That's when the Derby cover changed.
