There were 20 available on Amazon on Monday, so I ordered a set. The company selling them called and said they're discontinued but should be available with a new part number in two weeks. We shall see...

Approaching mid May... has anyone heard of a new part number, or any news on the KM2's?

Pretty sure that's the old part number that is now discontinued. There should be a new part number for the new version.

04222 is the new part number (30639 was the old)

My wholesaler shows 158 incoming but none available today.

Retail will be around $220 each

I ended up paying $754 for mine, but got a good deal with free shipping and $70 BFG rebate (the BFG promotion expired a few days ago though). This was thru 4wheelparts.
