    Honda crf450x VS Yamaha wr450f

    I am new here guys and I like what I see already. I have a 94 yz 250 that blew a piston and I am in the process of repairing. However I am like what "only4strokes" describes, I like riding more than wrenching. Then again my neighbor is a R&D machinist for Honda and I have good access to cheap parts. I have a chance to get a new bike and I am comparing the Honda 450 to the Yamaha 450. I am an occasional desert trail rider with no desire to replace Bubba Smith since I am 6'3" and 250lbs, so my riding is mostly open and not too fast. My question is, how often will I have to buy the valves if I go with the Honda and how hard are they to change? Thanks, Joe
