Sounds like he's exactly what Xymotic is fearing. Just like I was before I lost my third license for points (28 years ago). Y'all have Fun
Sounds to me like the kid has been riding for awhile and should have no problem handling the 610. FWIW, the 610 is asleep compared to my YZ250 two-stroke, and I wouldn't expect anyone to say a kid that age who's been riding a few years isn't ready for one of those.
