I'm sorry to need to say this, his legs are 4-5 Inches TOO short for the seat height of the bike.
You better find a shorter bike or plan on investing in a warehouse full of handlebars, grips, levers. I'd hate to have him get discouraged with motorcycling in general and Walk Away Forever!
One needs to get the 'balls' of the feet in firm contact with the ground!
Better yet while learning, one Needs to Be Flat 'Footed'!! Maybe even 'knees bent'!!
Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!
Still riding my 1987 KL650-A1. 83,000+ miles & counting
