Installing new petcock on IMS

I got a new petcock for my IMS tank and the old tank had a gasket between the tank and petcock. I have been lookin around the microfiche and don't see it there.
Can anyone point me in the right direction of where i can find one? I don't think that just the o-ring will keep it sealed.

OK, I'm going out on a limb here, so if I'm out of line just tell me to sit down. I have never messed with an IMS, and my only familiarity with KLR petcocks comes from changing mine to gravity feed, and vatrader got me looking at petcocks yesterday.

If you are using the stock petcock, then is the gasket you're looking for seen here:

as part number 51039?

If you're using a Pingel, or something, I got no clue...

Go down to the auto parts store and buy some fuel resistant gasket material and make your own. It's easy and cheap and you won't have to wait for it to be delivered.

well, the one that my bike has it's not shown. I do have the one you are talking about but I just don't see how that's going to work by itself.

I think this is what I'm going to end up doing.

If it helps when I put my IMS tank on I was able to save the gasket by gently peeling it off. Just to be on the safe side I also used an adhesive gas tank sealant in a very thin layer. It's never leaked.
