Angry Leaky petcock???

When I ride my 98 it seems to be fine, when I shut it off after riding I develop a fair leak from what looks like the petcock. Did anyone else have that problem? I looked in the service manual and found no good info about the petcock at all. I know there's a vacuum there and I guess it loses that vacuum when I turn the bike off. Does anyone know what type of fix would work. I can't find anything relevant about the rebuilt of a petcock or the ineer working of it so any advice would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Is it leaking out of the vent port at the bottom? If so, you need a new petcock. I don't think K&L or Honda make a repair kit. You could always try to take it apart and see what the problem is. I have a thread on here from a month or so back where I took pics of mine. I'll see if I can find it.
