Default Suzuki Diagnose (Milky Oil)

Hello All,

I just had an offer to purchase a suzuki 250 for a very reasonable price. However, the owner is selling due to milky oil and he cannot find the time to repair. The head gasket and thermo was changed due to the milky oil and then test ran which came back OK with no alarms. However the milky oil persisted on the run.

My question is 1. Should I purchase for $1000
2. What can possibly be the problem?

I'm thinking a midsection crack where the water is seeping in the sump? That's the only other diagnose that I can think of. 2011 Model
Attached is the model/serial tag.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Regards

Translation: it needs major repair or nobody can figure out what is wrong with it.

I would be Leary of this motor, I would guess one of the heads has a crack and if it still has water in it the possibility of rust on everything internal is high.
