However, there is one thing I would certainly like to add. If you are buying a 2nd hand race bike - stay away from 250 4 strokes. There are a few comments about the cost of running a 2 smoke here, but they pale into comparison to the cost of running a 4 banger race bike.

Would be more reliable and easier to ride.

This one's a 300, but you could likely find a road legal 250 for a similar price if you were patient. 10 years newer than the old TTR you linked to, and a hell of a lot better.
