the "problem" with water cooled engines on the long run is just related on rubber parts natural degradation (seal, gasket, hoses) even if you don't use it at all..not to mention the chemistry reaction between liquid and metallic-rubber parts..rubber resist better proper oil aditives..and that's the reason for the air cooled engine to keep useful on the long run...ofcourse that a bigger displacement engine will last more than a smaller one doing the same aplication due to less stress due to lower average efford.........and due to the nature aplication of the aatv world ( to run on noman's land) you better get reability and simplicity on the component to minimize surprise breakdown.....
