It will fit, the two tangs in the centre of the cap fit inside the cylindrical bit that is held on by the centre bolt, you may need to "adjust it" by opening the tangs out a bit. But be warned they do have a habit of committing suiside on the motorway and usualy in front of a big truck.

The hub cap goes on quite easily as explained by Rick G. Over the years I have been sticking a very small thin thread of good old Prestik along the edge of the hub cap that rests on the rim and it sticks very well without being hard to pull off and have never lost a hub cap.

Looks like you got a cap to the K75 three spoke wheel.

K75`s using four bolts on the rear wheel.
K100 4V and K11`s using five bolts.

And because of that it`s different length on the tangs.

Same is used for the older K100's - no centre bolt.

Yes Rene, all monolevers use only four bolts.......
but the hub cover is different on a three spoke than a Y-spoke.

I've just measured the cap i have - 53mm length tangs, the one I apparently need is 33mm.

I figured that this will be about right, it stuck out about that much when I tried to fit it.

It'll be tomorrow before it arrives, so I've got a little time to clean the rear wheel to make it the same colour as the newish cap. Laughing
