Yamaha EX5r

My friend is looking to purchase an EX5r, however there is a knob cap missing and we are wondering if this can be be replaced?

Thanks if you can help!

There's a topic on replacement knobs here:

And a photo of my EX5 with replacement knobs here (though you can't see the raised white pointers on the knobs from the angle of the camera):

you could actually contact yamaha, they stock knobs from discontinued synths. I've ordered knobs for both the cs2x and an1x from them and it only cost a few dollars.
