Was riding when I started losing power.Then began pouring out smoke let it sit a few days, drained carbs and it fired right up,seamed to run fine except it still had little power.whats wrong with it

You probably broke a cylinder ring. The cylinders are dry when you haven't started them for a while and sometimes that extra friction catches a ring just right and breaks it. A break in the ring kills compression and therefore power. Also the ring allows oil to come up from the oil pan into the combustion chamber where it doesn't burn and you get all the smoke.
Run a compression check on each cylinder by putting a compression tester in the spark plug hole. If one reading is a lot lower than the found your culprit

Oil leak suzuki..Haven't road my 2001 vz800 much.. Turned in on today and starts to smoke out of the exhaust and oil leaking out of the exhaust pipe. Bought it recently.

You didn't say what color the smoke was, but even so I'd say that's (probably) not oil coming out - it's soot, or wet soot since the bikes been idle. Normally it gets blown out (mostly) when you ride, but when they sit the moisture in the air can turn it to gooey black gunk.
My best guess.

What does white smoke coming from exhaust of a 01 'suzuki gsxr 1000 mean when starting only?

For motorcycles with 4-stroke engines: The white smoke from the exhaust means that the engine oil is leaking into the combustion chamber where the petrol burns. ... This eventually means that you have to get your piston changed along with the piston rings that prevent the engine oil leaking into the combustion chamber.

Black smoke coming from exhaust occasionally.

Black smoke is indicative of carbon or incomplete combustion caused by either poor ignition (weak spark) or too much fuel (choke setting). Check out these areas.

My gsxr has develped a problem. the bike has been mainly overhauled bar the engine. the bike fires up, with a bit of persuation from the throttle but smokes a wee bit. just thought it was a cold engine but...

Hi, Gary_cunn331 your instrument gauges and lights can alert you to most electrical and engine issues they can not warn you about failed engine gaskets or seals so your engine has to resort to old fashion alert methods of colored "SMOKE SIGNALS" here is a breakdown of their meaning:
1. COLORLESS OR SLIGHTLY BLUE SMOKE on start-up means your air/fuel mixture is at the right composition and everything is well burnt in your combustion chamber.
2. BLUE SMOKE on start-up is usually caused by failed valve seals dripping oil into the combustion chamber when the engine is not running.
3. YELLOW OR BROWNISH SMOKE at start-up means your air/fuel mixture is too lean. Too lean means that there is low fuel but high air mixture in your combustion chamber.
4. WHITE SMOKE on start-up may be caused by a blown head gasket allowing coolant to enter the combustion chamber and may start dripping out of the exhaust pipes or mufflers. Smoke while riding is usually caused by worn out or damaged valves, seals, guides, pistons, rings, or cylinder walls.
5. BLACK SMOKE on start-up is usually caused by too much fuel in the combustion chamber this can be due to air/fuel mixture adjustment too rich, accelerator pump improperly adjusted, faulty choke/enrichner or not in the off position, air filter dirty and clogged, faulty carburetor float needle and seat, pilot jet too large, fuel injectors leaking, smoke while riding is usually caused by the main jet being too large or a damaged carburetor.
It should be noted that aggressive or abnormal throttle operation will cause these conditions to manifest themselves exponentially.

While riding my Suz GS500F (2009) home in the rain last night I started seeing smoke coming from the lower left side of the motorcycle. Stopped at a light and loads of smoke came up through the fairing....

I presume that you were riding it back from the dealer when you had the smoke problem ?? in that case one possible cause could be that when they serviced it they got some oil on the exhaust pipe and when the pipe got hot it burned it off. let me know if that helps or not. Alex.

I have a 2008 Suzuki C90T. I has a bad ticking noise when it is cold. It has hydralic lifters so the valve can't be adjusted. The bike has 20k on it. The ticking seems to be getting worse but it will go...

Try checking your valve stem seal or see if your exhaust pipe blows white-bluish smoke when you up the rev for the oil leak. If it does then have it fixed or you can try to use oil sealer additives for not so badly damaged seals or even piston rings.
How often did you change the oil, have you ever use engine or lifter flush additive?
Go to your local car/motorcycle shop look for an engine flush/lifter flush additives, put it into your oil, ride for about at least 60 minutes, change the oil and filter, ride again for about 2 weeks (200-300km) then use the same additives again, change your oil and filter again,put in fresh oil and filter and that should give your a relieve from the noise tappet ticking.
