Needle should be more like $13.00. Jets should be less too! :)

I just bought a couple of needles for my WZ.....paid about $25 for the two needles. Try http://www.sudco.com.....I bought both main and pilots for @$3.50/ea. They do not carry the air jets (PAJ & MAJ) or the starter jets...those are dealer only. My dealer (Vickery Motorsports)would actually swap my jets for me. Starter jets were expensive @$10 apiece. I'll deal with the one I have for that price.
Good luck,

The official "Yamaha" jets are much more expensive that the "after market" jets. Jets from Yamaha are between 10-12 bucks, aftermarkets are around 5. Just be careful with sudco, I just bought 3 main air jets from them the jets were 3-4 bucks a piece and shipping was 8. If you are going to the EKP needle, sudco can't help, only your Yamaha deal can get the EKP and it cost me 15 bucks. Hope it helps.
