Each week we feature sponsors who we are proud to have partnered with and all of which are integral parts to the continued success of the Rocky Mountain ATV/MC – KTM – WPS team.
In this week’s sponsor of the week we feature Hinson Clutch Components.
In 1992, Wayne Hinson founded Hinson Clutch Components. Wayne who was a general contractor by trade, had an extreme passion for motorsports and spent most of his adult life pursuing that passion in the form of drag racing, powerboating, and of course, off-road motorcycling and ATVing. After a hiatus from his initial love affair with motorsports in the early 70s, Wayne reacquainted himself with motorcycles in the early 80s. By that time, he had two young sons who shared the same passion.
Their story truly begins in 1989, when Wayne became involved with professional ATV racing as the tuner for Grand National Champion, Gary Denton. Wayne assisted Gary in winning seven of his record eight Grand National Championships. Wayne’s relentless attention to detail was evident in the building of one-off parts for the race bike: seat latches, airbox rings, counter balancer brackets and of course clutch baskets. Whenever there was something the race bike truly needed that wasn’t available in the aftermarket, Wayne would build it. It was during this time that the first high performance aftermarket clutch basket was born.
During Hinson Clutch Components’ company history, they have worked with the top racers and teams in our sport; every factory Supercross/ Motocross team, every top World Championship MX team, every top ATV racer and many of the top Road Race and Supermoto teams. Essentially, every off-the-shelf Hinson Clutch Components product available today is the direct result of developments made while working with the greatest racers in the world.
So, whether you need a clutch for Sport Bikes, ATVs and Off-Road Motorcycles, they offer everything from clutch baskets, inner hubs, pressure plates, slipper clutches, fiber & steel plates, clutch springs and clutch covers. To date they have won over 267 National and World Championships. They truly have an amazing product that is been proven time and time again!
