Supply chains are busted because of Covid, and everyone gets paid to sit on the couch....it is affecting all industries.

FMF is working to fill demand, because all you fuckers decided to go and buy new dirt bikes lately.

So blame yourselves.

...regardless, I still found several for sale - the 250, 350 and 450 all use the same can.

It must be difficult needing double-doors everywhere you go to fit your ego through.

That was kinda funny. But Brent is also kinda right. Demand spikes combined with supply issues don’t make things work well. It will be interesting how many more years people can just keep saying “covid” for all the worlds problems.

Agreed. More a comment directed at his continued posts portraying himself as superior to everyone else and “all-knowing.”

Back on track, I agree, with the addition that we are also seeing what happens when you allow a ton of folks to make similar or better money sitting at home as opposed to coming to work. Let’s face it, many jobs (including the moto industry) pay on the low end of the scale. Many moto jobs pay low wages with the perk of being in the industry, making connections and getting discounts that help fund one’s moto habit.

Whether this wage/government money issue is evidence against government handouts, for higher wages, or both is another discussion for somewhere other than vital...but it’s easy to see the net result in everything from restaurants to moto.

I called and spoke to FMF a couple months back and they said they source everything in America so it truly is not having enough help to build the pipes. End this handout bullshit and get people back to work. Wasn’t trying to bitch just wondering if other people are having the same issue

That's it in a nutshell. I have equipment orders that were placed last November that had 2 month lead times and they are just starting to ship next week. The whole global supply chain is fucked because of Covid. Raw material costs are volatile. Just a complete mess. Customers are pissed, but at least somewhat understanding given the circumstances.

I keep telling our suppliers that at some point a legitimate obstacle(such as Covid was) becomes an excuse for poor performance. We're reaching that point of inflection, and for them to get their shit straight.

Well, here in The Southland, getting people to come to work & make things is the Number One Problem on this specific “supply chain”.

All these “Free Checks For All” ain’t helping.

So FMF can’t find employees and that is causing it? Sign me up. Please. Funny they don’t have any help wanted ads on Motorcycle Industry jobs or anywhere else that I can find. I call bullshit on the government handouts causing it. It’s just to convenient to blame COVID for everything instead of admitting your faults as a company now.

Just a few days ago I called FMF directly. No luck. In fact they said I'd get one quicker going thru Motosport, Rocky Mountain etc. Called Motosport they said two months maybe if the planets align .
On a suggestion from a riding buddy I called our local hardcore moto shop here in town. They snooped around with all their suppliers, found one and lo and behold said I'll have it next week. Naturally I'll believe it when I see it but pretty sure it's en route. Who woulda thunk. They have lots of suppliers and sources to check I guess to sniff one out... plus you're helping out the local folks. Bike in question 2021 KX250

No worries. I’m sure you’re right. There’s no labor shortage in The Southland.

Tell that to the restaurants I have been to recently who were all running on skeleton crews, despite advertising on everything from indeed to Facebook for hiring.

Certainly FMF could have other issues, but the employee shortages are real.

Restaurants should go away. All of them. Haven’t been to one in 15 years and never will again. They are all crap high carb, high sugar bullshit. And they don’t pay shit for wages on top of that. Great to see them closing left and right.

While I agree that not working for starvation wages is reasonable, I still hate to see restaurants go out of business. Not everyone sees the world the way you do, and frankly, based on your post that is a good thing.

One of the huge issues in the workforce lately is that these “free checks” have allowed people to look outside the jobs they kept out of fear of being late on a bill. Some returned to finish degrees, others found they can finally hold out and not just take the first job offer they get. I know this is an insane concept, but economics is complicated.
