I dont know personally how reliable Hondas are,but ive heard about tons of valve trouble. But i do know how reliable the yamahas are. Id say it would be a fair switch if your thinking about upgrading bikes. If your just switching to switch then no.

all around where i live we have 02, 04, 05, 06 yamahas that get ridden hard and that get ridden lightly. Either the case, they have all lasted a long time for all of us riders, and have had zip engine problems

on the 250s.. u will have some work on the bike.. basic maint.. 95% of the time you wont touch the valves.. change the timing chain 1 a year to keep it fresh.. change the air filter and change the oil.. all u got to do to keep these bikes runnin..

my 02426 still has its original valves. with over 200 hours on it.. stock pistion.. never even touched the valves unless to check the clearance..

dude, i just did the same thing that your planning on doing, best move Ive ever made, the yzf is just amazing, totally trashes my crf everywhere, it fits my riding style absolutely perfectly. The reliability record of the yzf's is why I actually bought the bike. This is actually a little funny cause your in the EXACT position that I was in a little over 2 weeks ago. I went blue and im never going back

Have heard that those two strokes don't have valves. They oughta last a while or two. :thumbsup:

If you like your CRF and it does you fine then I wouldn't off it for fear of it grenading on you. There's enough people that ride CRFs problem free. If there weren't how could Honda continue to sell them year after year??
