In the pics, the DJ needle looks like it's made out of stainless steel, so it won't wear all that rapidly, but that does mean that if wear is visible, other parts, such as the emulsion tube, slide guide and slide are likely to have borne the brunt.
And this bike has not been on the dyno.
Would you like it to be?
Given my basic tuning set up ... what needle would you recommend to maintain status-quo or maybe go one better?
If you want to maintain the status quo, put another DJ needle in it. If you want better, try the non-USA oem needle or the KTM needle. However I would inspect the carb and replace any other worn parts first. If you do go with other than the DJ needle, be prepared to start over with your tuning.
