Figured I would post this here to, first saw this back in April, could be the reason the razr's are on backorder.
Maxxis/Cheng Shin is experiencing capacity issues at their main Taiwan factory. In some cases, lead times to get product have doubled from 90 days to 180 days. Capacity issues will affect motorcycle tires more than ATV tires. U.S. Maxxis/Cheng Shin distributors will have very little inventory for the next several months. Maxxis has plans to relieve capacity issues, but those plans will not have an effect for at least three to six months. We might see inventory relief in the fall and going into 2011.
Distributors will receive periodic shipments during the spring and summer, but not enough to maintain or build Maxxis inventory. All U.S. distributors are in the same inventory position. No distributor has good inventory and no distributor will be receiving large shipments.
