SOURCE: fuel switch
The fuel switch has three positions:
The arrow on the handle points to the position selected.
ON = Normal operation setting. Fuel will not flow through the hose to the carb until the engine is on. Gas in the carb bowl is used to start the engine. The arrow is DOWN when in the on position.
PRI = Fuel flows through the hose to the carb at all times. This setting is used if the bike has been sitting around and the fuel level in the carb may be too low to start the engine. For safety use this setting only to fill the carb bowl with gas or for brief testing.
RES = If you run out of gas, this setting will provide extra gas so you can hopefully find more.

Your bike has a fifth gear. The problem is probably a bent shift fork. Broken engagement dogs could be present but I have never seen that happen in anything other than 1st and second gear. This is approximately an $800 to $1000.00 repair. Personally, I really like only having to shift 4 gears. Don't you?
Below is a partial image of your trannie and also a generic image showing how a slider gear moves left and right when pushed by a shift fork. In this example the gear dogs engage into either 1st gear or 2nd gear depending on which way the fork moves the slider gear. If the fork were bent, the slider may go into second gear but not have enough movement to reach first gear. If the gear dogs were broken off then the gear has no way to engage.
I don't get paid for my answers but I do take pride in them, I just try to help where I can. So if you feel it is right, > > A “very helpful” rating for this answer? Thanks!

I had the same prob with my 97, It was not the head gasket but the O-ring on top of the head. Replaced the O-ring and has been running good for a year now with no backfire. Hope this helps.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,
Sounds like a very lean mix; confirm by checking the sparkplug tips. If the burn is very light brown to almost whitish, then it would be lean - too much air, too little fuel. Check for an air leak in the air filter box/enclosure. This would also happen if the air filter has been replaced with an aftermarket free breather (like K & Ns) or the exhaust has been replaced and no jettings done.
Postback results of initial checks.
Good luck and thank you for asking FixYa.
