☆This time I personally need your help....☆
This was a tough decision to decide on. I generally stay behind the scenes keeping this site chugging along. Joe, is the one that gives out the amazing wealth of knowledge he has. I've put an amazing amount of time into the bringing together this website and not to mention have footed the bills a few times. I've kept us hacker free for a damn long time. I never ask much of you guy/gals. Only if we get in crunch time and the site needs a little help. Ive never asked for the ridiculous thousands I have seen another site ask for.. ridiculous is the perfect word. I even removed ads for those that log in, severely cutting revenue. Sites been about helping people, not making money. I feel bad actually doing this.. but I need help. I have gastroparesis brought on from diabetes(20+ years). I've been struggling with this nightmare for over 3 years. Finally diagnosed beginning this year. Look it up. Look up worst cases... that's me. Ive lost 60 lbs since January. 28 days ago the company I've worked for for many years found their dirty lil way to fire me. I was approved for up to 3 days off a week for fmla.. that really pissed them off. So illegally fired, savings drained from medical bills, bad diabetic now with no insurance. I'm in deep shit. That is politely saying it unfortunately. If any of you guys cant help please at least keep me in your thoughts. If this was wrong, me asking for help, my apologies. I'm declining in health fast, and unemployment hasn't came through yet and that in itself is a nightmare. Anyone who can, please donate to the website. This time it goes to help me. Thank you everyone. Again, my apologies for asking. I honestly don't know what to do or where to turn.

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.

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.
