twin-shock would be the way to go, since in today's modern competition,
the 350 would probably be outclassed.
Let see the last time I won our expert class on a ty 350 was like `96 then sold it cuz that is what I did. I rode what I took in trade no matter what it might be and the ty was damn good. (but I did put a disc brake on it) The twin shock was a pile of shit!
Your grandson would destroy a old ty 250 in no time.
The only time I rode a twin shock ty250 was when the Yamaha learn to ride program was going around the states. In two days time we almost destroyed 5 ty`s in a parking lot!!!!
And we smiled at the dealer when done!
