vacuum operated fuel valve leak

the housing that the flip-reserve switch goes into is leaking. Is there some common problem here that can be fixed? Nothing feels loose.

Cracked diaphragm or weak spring. The part # for the diaphragm service kit to fix the leaky stock petcock is 61200-97 around $27. Check and make sure this works for your bike.

My casing was cracked, had to buy a new petcock.
The new one runs all the way to empty, the reserve is not working with my Mikuni Carb
