Ah, gotcha. I would say almost all of the water came out initially, because when i went to pull the hose to drain the remaining coolant, only about a cup came out

At this point its a questionable and highly suspect motor. As you're a honest seller and disclosing the event expect pricing in the range reflecting a questionable motor. At least until you can source the location(s) of the leakage.

Take it out this weekend and ride it proper. Would be interested in hearing if anymore mixing occurs.

I can't see the videos on my work computer and there has been no comment on whether there is continued contamination occurring (elves working their magic) or overheating. There are only several seals/gaskets low enough to check that would allow essentially the entire coolant capacity to empty into the crankcase. After that its tearing into the motor looking for cracks. I suspect the later - assuming there are no freeze plugs.
