What is the history on this TLS?
Was it recently brought out of storage when this occurred?
Did it sit through freezing temps last winter? Freeze plug let go?
Is it a daily rider, but all of the sudden the oil turned milky?
What type of coolant, gasoline, and oil do you use?
Any chance someone put diesel in the crankcase? (kidding)

Despite the water pump seal being brand new I would still make that the first thing to check. A case full of mayo is a classic sign. Ask any CX500 owner.

Brand new water pump, seals and inpeller. Emulsion is in the front cylinder TB but not the rear.
Hi. Ticked it over a couple of times. Fitted a catchcan and it started spurting that milky shit. Put the original crankcase breather to air box pipe back on. Ran perfectly with no fault codes til it got warm then just cut out, radiator was empty with absolutely no coolant. Drained the sump and and and all that custard came out. Just in the pprocess of removing the motor. Another thing, rear plug and TB were perfect but the front plug and TB were full of that emulsion and the left can(front cylinder) was kicking out what looked like steam!

Fitted a catchcan that started spitting that emulsion so refitted crankcase to airbox pipe. Ran perfectly for 20 mins then stopped. No fault codes but coolant was all gone. (No leaks)Rear plug and TB were normal front plug was milky and front TB was full of that 'custard'. Drained the sump and all that shit came out. Just in the process of removing the motor!😔

I'd suspect your water pump seal is gone. Popped head gaskets are rare, to say the least.

Like my TL I'm old, overweight and badly maintained but I can still surprise you by how fast I can move.
