I have a 2000 sportsman 500. A little background on it it’s currently blowing cooland out of the reservoir (im guessing head gasket) plan on replacing soon. But the main issue is that while riding the motor starts to slowly die. seems to seize and the tires lock up. It happened the second time today and i heard and smelt the belt burn. My grandpa changed the oil recently so i will try to change it again, maybe he used the wrong oil? It does run about a cup low on oil as it bows a cup out into the airbox. Feel free to leave suggestions on any of these problems, bit my main concern is the engine seemingly seizing up. Thanks in advance to anyone that can help
