Search this forum for free mods, AIS removal, etc... Have him search this forum to get a idea of a decent quiet exhaust system. Ditch the stock dunlops, TM designs chain guide, re-spring suspension if he's over 210 lbs., jetting, jetting, jetting........ it's probably to lean already, search this or the jetting forum for Indy's chart. :excuseme:

If I got another new bike, it is suspension respring / revalve straight away,
with a decent mx slip-on muffler or exhaust system. I wouldn't even look at the bike unless these two things were done.

Then he could look at things like Dunlop 952 tyres, fat bars and bike protection like hand guards, frame guards, rad guards and bashplate.

Swapping to a YZ exhaust cam is a good trick too.

As SJMC DON has said, Jetting is a big part of setting up the WR's. A GYT-R AIS kit comes with a needle and pilot jet required so it is a good purchase.
