Lubricates the clutch disks.

The wet clutch needs to have the disks lubricated in order to cool them. If the clutch is starved from oil the disks will overheat. Side effects are distortion of the metal disks,which can afect the operation of the clutch. The disks have friction with the clutch lever pressed, developing dragging and difficult gear changes (god forbid).

KTM tech - 2 cents

Just read through this thread, interesting. So, I went to KTM service site for a look around and found this on service training, Orange Level. US wise, finding a dealer with said training, would, could, should give confidence to those dealers service.

Is this the size the stock jet is 0.5mm? or did you drill to this size? I removed mine today. Before removing said jet I could see something shiny blocking it a small piece of metal debris. Getting it out of the hole with a shop vac reduced to a 3/8 hose it pulled right out. That is sure a small hole in the jet it wont take much to plug it. The question is to drill or not to drill any ideas?

The OEM is 0.30mm. I drilled it to 0.50mm.

In my country jets are not available at the specific size. And the OEM are too expensive for what they are. I think 0.50mm is not going to harm the oil pressure cirquit (lowering overall oil pressure). I 've drilled it trying to fix the dragging clutch problem. So I let it be!

How tight is this jet supposed to be?

I just slapped a 16t on my 950 SM and figured I'd clean out that oil jet by the clutch. How tight is it supposed to be? I gave it a bit of force and it didn't budge and I didn't want to go overboard. Is there a secret to this thing?

Bobby ping extractor

I finally worked up enough nerve to give it a nice, strong twist with the screwdriver. It came out, but I was pretty surprised by how tight it was . Anyway, instead of a shop vac, I used a bobby pin to extract it. I cut off the curved tips of a large bobby pin and bent the 'legs' outward. I basically made reverse action tweezers. Worked like a charm!

This is what I use to remove/replace (after broken loose) this type of jet:
