Yeah you'd blow it up in no time if you used it as a sport-tourer . I was thinking more like ride around locally doing wheelies until it gets impounded. Better yet, let me ride it around doing wheelies until it gets impounded.

Very, very nice.

Price sounds reasonably fair too.

Doesn't a regular TZ250 of that vintage cost more?

Maintenance would be a expensive though, I could see that motor popping without diligent service intervals.

Keep the valves adjusted and it should be ok for a while. My buddy's YZ450F has 2 full seasons of riding on it and the valves were all still within spec last time we checked them.

How often does your buddy stay at WOT, while nipping the rev limiter every few seconds. My 4 stroke MX knowledge is limited, but those valves are tiny so I'm going to side a pesimistic (sp?) attitude. Everything I have read about these motors leads me to believe they are very expensive to maintain.

Put it this way my KTM 450 SMR blew up with only 10 hours on it. This is a very high maint. bike.

They are high maintenance, that's why I ride 2 strokes. Grenading a $2000 top end would be a season-ender for me. I didn't think about the way a road race bike would be ridden differently than an MX bike. I can see it needing top end work much more frequently being used for road racing since you're spending much more time at revved up and at WOT, not so much on/off the throttle like you are on the dirt. When used for riding dirt I don't think they're actually as bad as their reputation (and this is coming from a die-hard 2 stroke guy).
