Any one have a part number on the seal for the petcock? Mines leaking where the lever is. There are two little screws that look like I can take off and replace the seal? Anyone have any info? Thanks, Steve.

I'll second that!! I tried to do that on my XR650R as well, because the petcock for it was over $50!!!! But in the end for a Yamaha, it's just easier and quicker to replace the whole thing.

So a new petcock from the dealer is only $15-$20? Is there a gasket or seal behind the lever?

You'll need one each of the following:
17 3AJ-24534-00-00 .SEAL, FUEL COCK
19 4X8-24512-00-00 .O-RING
20 3AJ-24523-00-00 .VALVE PACKING

As Ga426 pointed out, your results may vary.

You might want to concider the WR petcock. Same money, bolts right in and then you've got reserve.

I too had no luck with repacking the petcock. Ended up buying new. It would never shut off with the new seals or the old seals. New on worked great and was fairly cheap.
