Made in Florida – MTC Engineering

 I needed an intricate clutch system for my Kawasaki ZX14 race bike.  So the people I turned to are the best in the business and they are from Florida
MTC Engineering Cocoa Beach, Florida.


MTC Engineering

MTC Engineering has been developing, testing, refining and producing excellent quality high performance motorcycle components for almost 50 years.  Whether it’s on the Drag Strip or Street, their products continue to be the performance product of choice for companies, teams, and individuals building the quickest and fastest motorcycles in the world.  Their high performance Clutches have been a key ingredient to help many racers win championships.

Eric Hochstetler is almost 50 years old (a youngster) and is a degreed Mechanical Engineer. So… how does this make him a genius at MTC Engineering, the maker of some the greatest items in the motorcycle performance world? Great question. Did you know that Eric was a Director of Engineering for an injection molding company in Florida?

No? Then did you know that Eric was originally from Indiana (in the Middle) and moved to Florida after school, moved up thru the ranks of corporate America and finally decided to go out on his own and became the proud owner of MTC Engineering that was once run by Top Fuel Racer Tony Lang? For a man who had exactly zero experience in motorcycle performance products, not only did he get a fast track learning course in motorcycles, but he turned MTC into a powerhouse of speed, quickness and just damn good performance clutches.  Eric worked hard on improving manufacturing processes and at the same time moved most every manufacturing process in house to save time and money. In these last few years of economic uncertainties, MTC Engineering has continued to grow and prosper because of the guidance and direction of Eric and his team of dedicated employees.


Eric has also made major investments in new equipment and better processes allowing for new products to be innovated and produced which allows them to stay on the cutting edge of motorcycle performance technologies.

Thanks To Tiger Racing for this reprint of his article

Well I installed this unit last night and will be testing this Saturday June 11. I have friends that rave about this MTC Gen II clutch system and I am sure I will get equal results. Being a machinist I am always interested in how things are made and show all the students.  I always show them nice machined pieces that they may make some day.
