Please don't do this again.... :

Either bike is awesome. Some say the topend will last longer on the YZF but that depends on the guy riding it. Just buy one and enjoy.

With your specs I would go with the Honda. Its easier to ride.

You would grow to like the YZF more though.

No it doesn't. The top-end (and the rest of the motor) will last way longer than the Honda.

I understand we are talking about the 250F but how are you sure that your motor will last longer? I have around 70 hrs on my stock valvetrain. I have replaced the piston but it didn't need it. I have yet to adjust my valves. The only thing I have done is adjust my decompression. I don't nurse my bike around either. I bounce it off the rev-limiter and abuse it just like everyone else. So tell me how you know that the YZF motor WILL last longer? I just want some proof.

Get what YOU like, every one has their own opinion on manufacturers so it would really be hard to get an unbiased opinion.
