brake fluid is silicone based (most times) hence it will split up into its component parts in water , now coolant is mostly water with a bit of antifreeze added to it , so the two will sort of partly ways mix , silicone's can and will effect rubber parts , most times breaking them down into there chemical parts and most hoses are made of it , so if it were me , id shut it off and drain coolant and replace with new , as the longer you leave the wrong stuff in there the more it will affect the hoses
try bypassing the kill switch and the ignition switch. Often the switches fail before the other components. the ignition can usually be bypasses by simply unplugging it from the harness. You may have to loop the wires to bypass the kill switch.
IT COULD BE AIR LOCKED OR POSSIBLY A HEAD GASKET ISSUE, CHECK THE SPARK PLUGS TO SEE IF THEY ARE BURNING COOLANT. IF THEY ARE WHITE IN COLOR THAN THIS USUALLY MEANS THEY ARE BURNING COOLANT, TYPICALLY CAUSED BY A BAD HEAD GASKET. IS THE COOLANT LOW???
You might have solved this problem already but I'll throw this at you anyway. I had a similar problem with a 1991 SRV. The problem I had was that the engine was would kill on me when I was ridding, but only after about 30 min to an hour of running. After working on it I found out that the adjustment at the carb for the oil injection was off and what was happening was that the engine wasn't getting enough oil, so it was over heating to the point where it didn't destroy the engine, just enough to seize it up until it cooled down then was free again. I hope it helps you out.
