I was thinking the same. If the early bikes had plugs rather than jets then oil must be reaching the clutch by another route....
The other question is why would they make a provision for running an oil jet and then install a blank plug, and then change their minds and put a 0.30 jet in there??

Anyway, it looks like the KTM OEM jet is the same type as the Dellorto 6413. A quick ebay search pulls up a seller offering sizes from 53 upto 172 at 2.99 each.
