Intermittent Leak From Left Petcock After Stopping

During my ride last weekend my 2002 FE650 developed a dripping leak from the area of the left petcock above the exhaust pipe. The leak stopped after about 20 minutes. This has happened once in the past so I removed the petcock and added a gasket with sealant which seemed to fix the problem.

My thought is that the heat from the exhaust after I stop is somehow causing the leak which stops once things cool off.

Has anyone else had this issue and were able to resolve it?

I do left and right fuel taps that make the tap face outwards AND include a reserve. so two improvements as well as a change!
