A couple of questions... petcock and rear mudguard?

As per the header I have a couple of questions for you guys.
The first concerns the fuel petcock; my original one was leaking past the valve when in the off position, which I replaced with a used one from e bay and that one has the same problem.
I drilled out the rivets, and found that the diaphram had some wear on it so I turned it upside down and inside out re assembled.
At first I thought that all was well because it holds air pressure, BUT, when on the bike it still drips fuel while in the off position.
My question is does any one know of a diaphram that could replace this? or can one be fabricated at home, and if so what materials will I need, as officially Honda do not sell this part as the petcock is not rebuildable?.

The second one concerns the rear mudguard / fender, what modern shaped one is available (similar to a DRZ 400) to replace the integral guard rear light?

Thanks in advance.
Mark.
