Your needle is fine. My DVP was the same, and it was mentioned on this forum before.

Fred / Kevin in NH,

I am confused, I searched the archives and found a post that Clark says they are different.

Fred-did you order # 5BE-14916-DP?

WHat's up? I have a DKP stamped needle as well and found I could not seem to get the jetting right with it.

The Yamaha microphiche is wrong!

When you order the needle as a DVP you will get the DKP. Unless the have corrected the situation.

Order the part by the part number (the dealer may tell you are ordering a DKP. But you will get a DVP.

Go strictly by the number stamped on the needle.

They are not the same!!

Always go by the code stamped on the needle an DVP is a DVP not a DKP. The Yamaha part number for the DVP needle is:


In this series of numbers the 5BE is critical because Yamaha fish for 00 bikes will use a different three digit prefix (5JG)with all the other numbers the same and you will get the wrong needle.

If in doubt call Montclair Yamaha at 1-800-RID-EYAM and order it from them as they may have the DVP needles in stock.




good luck

Clark is right---

The YZ426 parts fiche is wrong

For clarity:

5BE-14916-DP is a DVP

5JG-14916-DP is a DKP (way too rich)

5JG-14916-EP is a EKP

My needle says OBDVP on it. I take it this is the correct needle.
