Yeah, you could really make the YZ tame and easy to ride with a little modification. Add a G2 Throttle cam, 2 base gaskets, and slightly retard the timing, along with a heavy 13oz Steahly Flywheel weight. It might take him a few rides to get used to it, but after a while he will.
My main point is that he will never find a 4 stroke that will handle like a 2 stroke will in the woods.
Or he could just get a KDX 220. Probably pretty cheap. Those are great trail bikes that are easy to ride, reliable, and pretty fast if the rider wants to go fast.
