I had it for a run there today, it ran alright for a couple kilometres then just died.. I looked into the oil resivouir and it was full to the brim with milky oil anti freeze mix, let it all drain back down and after couple minutes it started again.. Does that sound like the head is gone? I'd love to finally get this solved, I love this quad and have had it for about 4 years, people want me to sell it and get rid of this proble, but it has to much potential.. If you guys can give me a hand that'd be great, also a site to buy the parts I need would get unreal, thanks in advance guys! It's a 2003 kfx 400 running the Orange plastics

So you have had this problem for quite some time now and you are still trying to run it without repairing it?


Its time to pull the head. Its actually past time to pull the head.
Pull the head.
Check the headgasket.

Actually. Check the water pump seal first.

If its been running for any length of time with the milky antifreeze/oil circulating through the motor, its on borrowed time. Antifreeze is death for crank bearings, cam journals, (any bearing).... You're in for AT LEAST for a head gasket, cam chain, and valve shim job. Most likely more.
