I used L/C'd on several occasions over the past 30 years, and each time I had issues with coolant leaks, water pump leaking, hoses, etc.
As a blanket statement, unless a L/C'd version offered something an A/C'd didn't, I'd stick with A/C'd.
For instance, back in 2001, you couldn't get a ZTR with more than 25hp. Lazer offered the L/C'd Kawi and it was 27hp....I bought it for the 2hp....sold it for the complexity and leaks.
