petcock is #4 in this pic:
you should be able to switch between ON and RESERVE with this lever.
sure sounds like its starving for fuel as time went on so something is gumming up,
i would check to see if the fuel filter is clogged (#2 in the above pic) and if you can reach it, disconnect the output of the filter and see how it flows. if its a good stream, then focus on the carbs. if it doesn't, then replace it.
carbs may have gum & tarnish in them. you'll have to remove them and give it a thorough cleaning. if you're not comfortable doing any of this, then take it to a dealer or independant shop. if you're ok with removing the carbs, but not comfortable cleaning them internally, then take them to a shop that can do this.
if you can get them off and want to see just how bad they are, then remove the bowls (#5 in this pic):
and see how bad the gum looks. it will smell like varnish and look either very sticky or very hard. be careful removing the bowls to keep the gasket in one piece. it it tears, then you'll need a new one from honda.
pay particular attention to the jets (#19 & #20 in the pic) as these little holes plug up almost immediately once gas starts going bad. you can remove the main jet and slow jet and give them a cleaning with carb cleaner and a bread tie (with the plastic removed, using it like a pipe cleaner). they are brass so be sure not to deform them with tools.
going any further will take patiences and a little skill, but you can try the above at a minimum and put it back on to see if it will run.

(Better1969) is correct. I just bought a 1983 Aspencade and there was no sound to my speakers. The gentleman I bought the bike from supplied new speakers but I quickly ruled that out. There are 3 fuse links behind the left turn signal in the fairing. 1 was a 1 amp, 1 was a 2 amp and the blown fuse was a 5 amp. I didn't have a 5 amp so I put a 2 amp in its place. So far the sound is still working but my FM radio reception is very poor.

Usually the compression runs 140 to 150 range. If you have 105psi on all cylinders it just means poorer than normal mpg. The bike is big enough at 1500 cc to still have a lot of power for the road. The good thing is the equal psi in all cylinders. Generally a difference of 10 % is the max you can get by with before engine vibration and 'missing' at idle shows up. So if your bike still runs smooth and starts well, don't be bothered too much with the 105 psi. Once it hits 90 or less it really should get a fresh top end.
