Just replace the brake switch or reattach the spring.

Water in the oil? Has it been sitting around unused for a while. Check the radiator fluid level, is that near the level mark? Change the oil and filter first, doing a head gasket is a big job, and not one of the SV's usual problems. Mayonaise in the oil is usual if its been sat for a while, it'll go after a ride or two.

Popping when running is kinda normal, probably a gap in the exhaust if its had an aftermarket can fitted

Don't worry about the gap between the can and the pipe, it won't do any harm

Fix it with this

As Mavizcap said. Only other suggestion on the popping is a vacuum leak on the carb boots. Worth getting the airbox off, check the rubber on the boots on the inlets and if they are not perished just make sure they are mated well and the jubilee clip is fine.
