As you now know, jets don't wear out, and don't need replacing unless damaged. Also, getting the correct ones often requires you already knowing which ones, so the dealer doesn't have the chance to screw up.

Yes & no.

Jets do wear out as any other metal against metal moving part does.

Dealers do screw up. (they're just guys who can't get a proper job after all!)

Jets

I am pleased you got the bike running.
However: It is fairly easy to find out what size the original jets are.
It is fairly easy to acquire new jets. It is fairly easy to read the number on the jets which tells you the size.

From stock the next step is to find out what if anything has changed.
There are tuning guides available.

But my main message is still: I am pleased you got the bike running.

Jets don't have metal to metal wear.

They meter the fuel so they get extremely little wear from the fuel.

Only the needle jet/jet needle, as they are the only jets with moving parts. All the other jets are just holes that fuel passes through.
