That my friend is a base head gasket leak. I'd replace that and if the problem still exists then your cylinder surface is warped or cracked. When you pull the head off inspect it closely

I also assume your having power issues as well.

can i ruin anything by lightly driving it and
 
does the engine have to come out for this
 
ill get the pdf
Depends on the compression. You could lose alot of oil if it runs for lengthy amount of time. Could overheat. Many things can happen but to catch it early enough is key. The engine can stay. The head is 8 or more bolts. Comes off easily.

      Headlights on my Outlander 570 are junk.  Would like to upgrade to a light bar.  What is the max size (wattage) that it can handle? 
      Can I just split into the high beam wire for an install.  I see YouTube videos of a separate switch that hooks up straight to the battery, but wouldn't that drain the battery if the machine is off and lights cold be left on by accident.
      I'd like to hang it from the front rack as I have a basket installed on the rack that I would like to keep there.  If anyone has done this, please send a picture!

      Hey y’all I got a kfx 400, rebuilt the carb put bigger inlets on it, adjusted the fuel mixture screw 2.5 turns out and cleaned the fuel petcock. It starts up not so great, it takes full throttle with full choke and cranks for about 10-20 seconds before it fires and while “ideling” it surges very bad and I’ve messed with the idle set and it changes nothing, if you ride it casually it runs fine but as soon as you get on it for more than 4 seconds it stumbles and falls flat on its face and you have to wait for the carb to fill back up with fuel, I’ve checked everything and nothing is blocking fuel, I even put a bigger hose to see if that made a difference. Thanks for reading hopping to hear someone has some advice.
