Um ... Pedals!!! Your sled should have pedals .... that'll be nice and safe.
Seriously though .. my son is 12 and I just gave him my wifes Indy Trail Deluxe 340 (very clean). It'll go 60+ and is nice and light weight so he can muscle it around like I do to a big sled. I think he has the perfect first sled.
My first sled was an old peice of crap that I fixed as much as I rode it BUT I STILL HAD TONS OF FUN!!!
I guess what I'm saying is, get something light and reliable and don't worry about the engine size. 340 is fine to start.
I'm only 16, i have a sno pro, but i've been riden since i was 3 or 4 and started riden my own at about 8 years old, so i have a good amount of experience. My first was 1982 340cc arctic cat jag, and it tought me well.
