You could always try an internal twist grip clutch.

Motorcycle Internal Twist Clutch Device for Left Side Grips

I think Russell Mitchell from Exile Cycles has used something similar on a few of his bikes with great success. If he can grip the bars enough to twist this might be a whole lot less expensive than an automatic tranny and a whole lot less of a learning curve than a suicide shift.

You can get get a air clutch as well. They use them on race bikes. All he has to do is push a button. There are a few options like that it there.

I used to work with a guy that had a disabled right hand and arm. He could place the hand on the grip and make turns just fine. But, couldn't use the front brake or roll on the throttle. He moved everything to the left side. cut the brake lever down so he could feel the difference between the two levers and, as for the throttle you had to roll it forward to give it more. Good luck with the search and thank him for his service.

He might even be able to put a throttle boss/cramp buster on the left side to help with it.

Tell him from one vet to another, thank you for his service!

A rocker clutch and a tank shift , still available through the seventies, no modification necessary, much safer than a suicide clutch and very cool.
