Answer:

You might want to check out http://www.kartingwarehouse.com/index.html it's our other site that only lists karting specific products. For entry level youth karting, I usually recommend the following items:

Vega - Mach 1 Helmet - Closeout - This is a good snell rated helmet we have on closeout right now. 

K1 - Level 1 Karting Suit - by far our most popular karting suit. Fits well and is a good price.

Oakley - Karting Gloves - Closeout - last years karting glove by Oakley, we still have enough left to match most suit colors.

Oakley - Kart Shoes - Most popular karting shoe - also looks very cool. I might be able to get you more sizes than are listed on the page - just ask if you don't see it!

K1 - Karting Neck Brace - standard neck brace with good stock.

This is a good starting kit for karters- let me know what you think!

On each product there will be a link to the sizing chart. The sizing changes between brands so you'll need to check it on the item you are looking at.
For example on the Vega - Mach 1 Helmet - Closeout you'll see the link to the sizing chart right below the description. (Just below and to the left of the First picture of the helmet.)

All of the other products will have sizing charts in the same location.

The knee and elbow pads are completely up to you or your son- Around here most kids seem to run without them, but as with any optional safety gear it certainly would never hurt to have!

Let me know if you have any other questions!
