I've just tried google translate on an excerpt about needle and jet wear on a carb. This is the result which is quite usable :
"NEEDLE and needle jet
The wear on the needle (all carburetor)
and needle jet (all carburetor)
can not be measured, since the needle conical
is formed and the inner roundness
The needle jet is not measurable.
By constant friction and
Hitting the needle (caused by
Vibrations) in the needle jet is formed
Also here is a material reduction in

(Off), the higher the wear out
Full load is virtually no wear
instead. Why can not an exact KM
Give indication for the exchange.
Packages should be at a LC4
Replace every 20,000 km (needle and
Needle jet), 4-stroke KTM Racing latest
every 2nd Season, KTM 2 stroke each
Season (needle) occur."
