I don't think the spring is a serviceable item from Yamaha.
Outlaw Racing Products provides the rebuild kit for the petcocks, however, don't show the spring in it. You may want to contact them to see if it is indeed available. Good Luck.

If it turns out it isn't available. You can find plastic contains with a mixture of springs in it.
Harbor Freight has a 200 piece assorted spring set.

New complete petcocks sold on ebay for $9.28 US as of this writing.

Hopefully, the right size spring and tension will be included in the assortment. But, for a few dollars more you can get a refurbished for $9.28 or a new one for a little more or less. Eliminates the guess work and you can apply the spring box dollars to the petcock replacement price. Just saying.

Brand new for $8.19 with free shipping. Estimated delivery October 24, 2018:

It's just me, but I would go for the new one. It's here in the States and estimated delivery is 1 week. But then you may not be in the U.S. and your profile doesn't say.
