'97 F3 or '96 YZF600R

hey all,

i'm looking to buy a bike and i'm down to these two.
assuming BOTH are in excellent condition,

the 97 F3 (all red) is about $4500 with 26XX miles,
the 96 YZF (all purple) is about $3500 with 44XX miles.

which one should i get?
any opinions will be appreciated.
thanx.

P.S. - the '96 YZF600R is the one with two headlights, not the remodeled one that changed to one

I honestly don't know much about the YZ, but I owned an F3 and loved it - highly recommend this bike.

They are both good! I have read that the Yamaha is better for shorter folks. Ride them both and decide!

thx for the reply guys.

hmmm. i was actually leaning towards the YZF since it's cheaper.
i'm not sure how long i'll keep the bike but i really like the styling of the YZF.
