My Acerbis petcock has developed a leak when turned to the "reserve" position. Why might that be? Is it a simple Oring replacement? Anyone had similar issues?

I removed and reassembled everything. I think it is okay, it just feels different going from a bald tire to a TR8. For example when I drive on pavement the tire feels like it has its own path.
