petcock leak

The petcock on my 01 deuce is leaking, what can it be causing it, and what is involved in fixing it, it doesnt leak while the gas is off but when im riding i notice it drips. do i need to take it somewhere and let them fix or is it an easy fix, any help would be greatly appreciated.

The internal disphram that seals the "dial" is leaking. There's a rebuild kit you can get from the dealer. Not difficult to repair...
