Since Hinson is not making quick change clutch covers anymore, im looking into machining te rings and the covers for the oem cover. I would like to have the ring and then a see through lexan cover, similar to a lock out cover, but no lockout. I need to know how any of you would be interested in something like this?? And, i need a pic of the Hinson cover to see exactly where they cut the stock cover, and what there ring looks like. thanks guys??

I'd also be interested. Would these covers use the exact same design as the Hinson covers, e.g. would you be able to interchange the lexan cover with a Hinson, etc. billet cover?

I would go for a clear cover, if it interchanges with hinson. If you can get your hands on tinted or colored lexan, that would be even better. If you want to get really trick, custom etching on the cover would be awsome. When you ettch lexan and then put and led on the end of the lexan, it makes the etching glow. I ride my bike alot at night and that would be freakin awsome.

well it seems everyone is interested in a lexan cover for there hinson huh? LOL We could do it exactly like a hinson just clear i guess? the etching is a good idea as well.... does anyone have an extra hinson outside cover by chance? one i can buy or borrow for a short time?? the only quick change cover i have is for my lock up, and its totally different..

Well, I don't have a Hinson cover, I've got the stocker, so I'm still interested in your original idea. LOL!

we will definetly go with my original idea and modify the cluctch cover, but i will make it retro fit, so the guys that have the hinson billet cover will be beable to bolt on the lexan one to there existing one.. but like i said before, my original idea was to mod the cover, and fit it with a lexan cover for those of us that do not have a quick change cover!

I'd be interested. I'm assuming Lexan is a type of plexiglass type material that is clear. Which is a cool idea. However if you can figure out how to do this, would it be too hard to keep a stock look or fit a CR250 or some other quick change cover that is in production and easy enough so all you have to do is the mod rather than produce the whole thing.

Just some ideas. I think if you can get it to $250 price range you'd sell a bunch - probably couldn't keep them in.

I thought that it was going to be a service. For example, we would send you our clutch covers and then you would complete all the necessary machining, etc. and install the lexan cover. Is this correct? Would you polish the clutch covers too?

yes it will be a service, and yes we can have them polished...
