The valve is open when the lever and valve are parallel. Generally that is down. When the lever is pointing across the valve it is closed. Think T vs. I. If the lever and valve cross it's closed, if they go the same way it's open.
That applies to a two position valve, if your Bayou has a reserve postion it could be different. That would be three positions and across one way would be open, down would be reserve, and across the other way would be closed. Should be marked on the petcock if that is the case.

Blue smoke means oil is burning. The most likely reason is oil is getting past your piston rings because of wear. Run a compression check. If it is less than 150 psi it is time for a rebuild. It may run for a while burning oil and you will want to replace most of the parts anyway so it probably won't cost you much more money to keep running it until it dies. Just keep a close watch on your oil, if you run it out of oil it won't run for more than a few minutes.

No, the reverse light is only for reverse indication. If the light is coming on while riding in any forward gear there is a loose connection, probably where the reverse sender attaches to the transmission or the sender itself is malfunctioning.
