The cutoff valve should never be disassembled; but yours should include a diaphragm, a tiny o-ring, and a spring. If either part is missing, you'll need to either buy a whole new valve from Honda, or buy a used carb off eBay. You can buy a Chinese carb and use it for parts, but beware; the Chinese carbs are a TOTAL gamble (as you'll see in the first video sent by tortoise), but can save you a bundle in parts IF the parts were accidentally made right! In the case of my Honda Helix, the original cutoff valve was leaking, and the o-ring was not available ANYWHERE! I ended up having to buy a whole new valve... for around $90.
