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

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.

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.

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.

Thanks for the clarification.
If you haven't laid it down, you're not riding hard enough!
