SOURCE: Fuel Reserve switch
Typically there are three positions to choose from. On means you are using the main tank. Reserve means reserve tank and off means no fuel available from either tank. the off setting is used when trailering your bike.

Replace the petcock. The rubber diaphragm is ruptured. I'd also bet your fuel mileage dropped cause the ruptured diaphragm is allowing raw fuel to be sucked into the intake manifold.

The petcock on your bike is supposed to be one of the vacuum operated type petcocks. When the engine is started, the vacuum from the engine is supplied to a diaphragm on the backside of the petcock open the fuel valve. It may have been changed since these valves were notorious for problems.
Your petcock should be labeled "ON", "OFF", and "RES" if it's a manual petcock. There should be and arrow on the lever on the petcock as well. This is the best advice I can give without being able to look at the petcock. I hope it helps. GOOD LUCK and ride safe.
