He will never put the miles on two wheels like I used to plus he has several bikes so he should get the second over bore piston and get it bored to that size,

It could be good for anywhere is from 5 to 11k miles due to the low RPM of these bikes,

Kawasaki is my favorite two-stroke enduro and or street 2t bikes they just plain rule,

Had a kh400 from 7K to 14k mi untouched, though the compression was low and a bit harder to start especially in cold weather and pretty sure the the rings/top and was toast still started and ran fine once warmed up, I cried when I had to sell it due to being laid off,
