Question about 2003 Suzuki GS 500 E
I have an extra voice in my bike(suzuki gs 500). It repeats about 60-120 times in second. Its like a chain would be rubbing into something(krrn krrn krrn). The voice comes while i am driving and staying still. If I rev it up the sound will disappear or other sounds just will cover it. Thanks for an answear.

SOURCE: how to tight the chain
The drive chain for your motorcycle should have no more than a 1/2 of play in it. Place the chain with the motor shut off between your thumb and fore finger. if you can move it up or down anymore than a 1/2, then you'll need to tighten it. Adjust both sides of the chain tensioner equally, and you should be set.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,
To my understanding, an air leak would be anywhere before the carbs; the air box cover, the the 4 coupling rubber tubes or even the air filter itself. Although an air leak in any of these areas would not cause an intermittent high idle. Air leak here would cause a lean mix and/or a flat spot while accelerating.
On the other hand, a vacuum leak could cause high idle. Vacuum leak would be after the carbs and on any of the coupling to the intake ports of the engine or how they are fitted. In some versions, there are balancer nipples that have interconnecting rubber hoses and/or a vacuum line to the fuel cut-off valve that couls also have a hole or tear. It must be noted that the high idle because of a vacuum leak is consistent.
Intermittent high idle would often be mechanical or almost always on the throttle system. Common causes are:
