      Hard to tell from a pic all by itself.
      Could be Barons, could be Speedstar, could be Dynajet.

                  Can you provide a source for that photo? It appears to have a URL in the upper right corner. Or at the very least, the site it came from?

                    try this. I got this from a member on the old site (Witt33) I added the Speedstar measurement in the spots that mattered to form the taper.Click image for larger version  Name:	needle comparison chart.jpeg Views:	1 Size:	62.1 KB ID:	52718

                      Thanks for the post. It's going in my information folder.

                    Also note that the groove on the stock needle is in the same location/distance from the flat end as the 4th groove on a Barons needle I have taken OEM needles and changed the length to match a barons needle then marked them at the distance down from the blunt end to match that beginning of the barons taper, then put it in my drill to spin them to sand/file the angle of the taper to match that of a Barons needle. They are installed in a couple of our members bike right now and working fine. In installed them for a couple for members in Celina that didn't have jet kits with them but needed jetting work done I got an idea from MRSHAMROCK on the old site. So if someone wanted to put a little time and effort into modding a needle they could save the $60-$70 that a Barons kit cost and just buy a couple jets to rejet the bike. It takes maybe 20 minutes to make the changes on the needle because you have to keep measuring to insure accuracy of your cut and angle.

                      Dave, I believe you and I think alike. I've done the same thing for friends that were on a limited budget. Good job!

                    My Dynojet needle has 6 grooves.

                      I think the Speedstar needle also has 6 grooves
