The petcock is the valve you turn the gas on and off with; goes on the tank. 

 

Do you mean the 3 O-rings on the swivel fitting at the carb?  If so, they are Yamaha PN 3TJ-14564-40-00. 

 

Tell the geniuses at the parts counter to look them up for an '07 WR450.

If it is the petcock itself you may want to try bending the little piece of spring steel that keeps the valve tight to the seal so it puts more tension on the valve.

If it's the petcock, just buying a new one will save you more than $20 worth of aggravation.
