SOURCE: Almost a complete Lloss of power at higer speeds

Seems to be some lose connections (electrials)somewhere.
Could be the igntion switch, since after you tried a few clicks 'on' and 'off' it thn worked.
Try to spray WD-40 to its connections and better too to check all other connections like tht of the battery cables, fuse box,etc..etc.
Hope this helps!

SOURCE: my 2006 suzuki c90t is boging down it seems in 4th

From what you describe it sounds like an air leak into the manifolds, chek to see if any hoses are disconnected, have a listen for any hissing noises and follow them, also listen for the Fuel Pump to prime when you tun on the ignition, it should pump up pretty quickly if it doesn't it could be clogged or faulty. To test it is complicated and can be dangerous if you not sure what your doing, it has to do more with volume than pressure.

SOURCE: when changing gear on my

Either the selector pawls are worn or the selector is out of adjustment. I would tell the sales guys that the bike is (however old it is) and if the gear box fails it will be due to the poor setting up of the machine, not the rider.
Has it always been like that? It only has to go between gears when you hit the power band and you will leave an awful lot of metal on the road!
Ride safe and a Happy New Year

I have a 1993 GMC sierra 1500 extended cab 4.3 v6 TBI and I'm hearing stories about this Accel Remote Mount Super Coil burning out Ignition Control Modules

I don't know about your particular application, but I do know that manufacturers are not using heavy enough wire for many things on a vehicle. So if the coils are bigger (higher output voltage) then they probably would draw more power and more load on control modules. I don't know any reason why stock would not be enough spark, these are a lot more powerful already than ignition systems were 40+ years ago. So in my opinion, no I wouldn't do it.

Susuki baleno 4cyl 1.6l blowing smoke

It sounds like a piston oil ring is broken considering the valve stem guides and seals have been done, oil is definately getting into the combustion chamber there are only two places that can happen through the valves or through the rings, black smoke is always too much gas, blue smoke is always to much oil in combustion chamber. Hope this helps even though it's not the best news.

'83 Monte Carlo - Miss fire at idle/accel./driving

You can have car put on scope and it wll show any irregularities in the ignition system. It can also be dowithout any equipment. First, loosing ALL 8 spark plug wires, Now place the spark plug wires loosly back on, just secure enough to secure. You might need 2 people. Being the miss is more consistant in gear, APPLY THE EMERGENCY BRAKE , put trans into drive and raise rpm's till miss is obvious. Remove ONE plug wire at a time, TILL THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE IN MISS. Thats the cylinder missing. Start with the spark plug, inspect, work back to wires and cap. An EXTREME result will be NO COMPRESSION.
