HELP! Half quart of coolant in oilpan

So i purchased a 2015 h2 with 4000 miles on it. It has a brocks stage 2 slash cut full exhaust, Pc5 and guhl flash... i got the bike home a few months ago and just started getting it ready for season.. i went to change the oil and noticed milk lines running down the sight glass. Heard possible starting and shutting off a few times in winter can cause condensation and figured probley from him showing it to buyers that came to see it. I drained the medium light brown colored oil refilled with kawasaki oil and filter oem of course. Took it around the block for 5 mins and looked at sight glass, not super milky maybe one small streak but oil was light gold so hard to tell.... it sat for another few weeks until the other day i took her out hard.... got on it for about 30 minutes until i noticed my temps were getting bad.... fighting 224-228- 230 up n down on the highway at 60-110 mph didnt matter... as soon as i slowed to a stop at a light boom up to 240 then temp warning flashes... rode it home by shutting off at lights and waiting if needed keeping under 250. I was on it hard for a few good stretches up to 170mph and riding decently aggressive. I get home and my oil is full in the sight glass way overfull.... i think what the **** it was perfectly in the middle after i did it... i let it idle and refilled as needed like all bikes i know how to do oil change. So i crawl under the bike to drain some of the oil out and literally 1/2 QUART OF PURE COOLANT NOT MIXED is filling the bottom half of the oil pan with oil sitting on top... the bikes still warm... it pisses out until i see oil then i retighten the plug.... the remaining oil is not milky... its literally like something just broke and dumped it strait in the oil pan. PLEASE HELP i cant even find a shop to touch it and i cant afford 5k at a dealership..... even as all this was happening no crazy noises while riding, no oil smoke out exhaust pulling hard as ever riding strong..... very mysterious whats going on anyone??

THe bike is over heating, and you thought it was a good idea to do pulls to a 170 mph! Take it to a shop for a leak down and compression. It doesn't cost 5k at a dealer to do that.

Its a a local place now that I trust ill mention that thank you. Just worried if its something thats going to be labor intensive or tricky to do ill have to find a specialist or kawasaki dealer or something.

This is usually the sign of a blown head gasket. There are other possibilities but this is usually the problem. Replacing it can be done at home without a huge amount of knowledge. Following the service manual gets you through it. The issue is making sure the head is surfaced properly. It would behoove you to look at the service manual and look for other ways coolant could get into the oil.

There seems to be only two ways coolant can get into the oil and if it is not homogenised it could be the oil cooler. When guys store their bikes for the winter some leave the old oil in and it is very acidic, it attacks oil coolers, even gearboxes, you cant just turn the bike off and walk away for six months, deadly mistake. Very easy thing to do is take the oil cooler off and pressure test it. This is easier than checking the head gasket. Get a new oil cooler gasket before you remove it.
The coolant pump has a little hole where it joins the engine to stop coolant getting into the crankcase, doubt if this is blocked.

Also forwarded this to the shop tech, It would be great if it was something small like this thank you.

Its a blown head gasket .... i had the same issue!

Plan on a new head (old one will be warped bad), new engine cases (old ones will be scored), new pistons (old ones will be scored).

CMP in TN is the best shop to do this!

Sorry for the bad news!

How does this happen at 4k miles? I just cant believe what a piece of rush engineered crap these h2s are.... a flash and pc5 with hard riding does all that damage in a few thousand miles.... thats utterly pathetic
