SOURCE: choke on

Sounds like your idle jet is clogged. This is caused by gasoline evaporating out of the carburator during long periods of disuse which can leave a varnish residue. You will probably need to remove the float bowl and remove the jet to clear it as carb cleaning additives in the gasoline are usually useless for this problem. It is vital that you use the exact fit screw driver on float bowl screws as they are usually very tight. The jet will have a very small opening and you could damage the jet if you use the wrong method to clean it (do not use a drill bit). First try a carburator cleaner spray with the small plastic straw that comes with them. Look thru the jet hole by holding it up to a strong light to see that it is indeed clogged. Then try holding the small straw in the jet orifice and forcing the cleaner into and through the jet. Be careful that you don't deflect the spray back into your eyes. Use eye protection. You could try to soak the jet in a cap full off the cleaner for a while. If that doesn't work a very small stiff wire might work to push the clog out (from a wire brush?). Then try the spray method again.

SOURCE: my rev counter does not work on my kawasaki er5 1999

The ER5 has got an electronic rev-counter, no cable.

Like the oval rear brake-drums this is another ER5 bugbear, the rec/rec fails, the battery boils and the rev-counter is usually a victim too.
Often on ER5 specific forums there will be someone who repairs the circuit board and sells the repaired units much cheaper than a new one. it's usually a tiny zener-diode that is killed.

SOURCE: kawasaki er500 right rear indicator wont work

what right rear indicator do you mean?indicator of flasher?tail light?pls.make it clear so that i could help...if your problem is the indicator lights,it is surely attached to the batery line.Now,you can trace it by looking for the line/wire of the said bulb first,it is commonly a red wire.In vestigate it if there is a cut or pulled out wire particularly to the joints or connector.
..Second,you can check the negative line of the said light which is commonly black wire.,try to check it by simply directly attach the black wire to the body or to the crankcase of the motorcycle itself.Third,clean the bulb socket to remove rust & dirt.

BENT FRONT FORKS ER500 2004 MODEL


the wall thickness of forks on current models, is thin and they distort if you try to straighten them, if you measure at the bend they are not likely to be round. there may even be stresses and fractures that would need xraying.
I know in older repair manuals they say the inner tube can be straightened in a press with a dial gauge. and I straighten lots of them in the 70-80s.
In newer manuals they warn never attempt it
It is a fairly critical part of a bike that you, or a future owner doesnt need snapping of the bike.
