Its been a while since I flew through BKK but am slightly confused. I am arriving on LX from ZRH and connecting to KUL on TG. Do I have to change terminals at BKK. I need to clear Immigration at BKK due to my ticket restrictions and only have 1hr 50mins - is this enough time to clear Arrivals at BKK and check-in for my connection to KUL on TG?

You will not have to clear customs -- you will stay in the international terminal. TG has a large transfer desk, I imagine you should be okay on time, although it's always worth asking to get a boarding pass in ZRH!

Not sure what you mean by 'ticket restrictions' but 1hr 50 should be enough time. They may be T1 & T2 but they are the same building and you can walk from one to the other.
As LX is now in *A with TG you should be able to check your luggage and get your second BP in ZRH.
Unfortunately - I do as advised by Thai Airways in London.
This is because my ticket is an E-Ticket on LX but KUL is not an E-Ticket station so they cannot issue me my BKK-KL connection until I arrive into BKK at the Airport Ticket Office which is landside. See me other more recent post as I might just sod the BKK-KL ticket at UK-fares and purchase a 'local Thai fare'.
