Centerstand???

Anyone know if the F6B center stand will fit the Valkyrie?

Do you have a F6B? Or do you just have a center stand for one laying around for some reason?

Post up some pics of your bike if you can?

You need an F6B exhaust shield part 18417-MCA-A20 in addition to the center stand. Both parts bolt right on.

I installed my Gold Wing center stand on my Valkyrie to take the front wheel off.

I don't have the special shield for the exhaust, but I don't plan on leaving it on.

Even if I wanted to leave it on, the stand barely lifts the bike up. It is crazy easy to put on the center stand but the bad thing is it is very easy for it to roll off of the stand.

For it to work safely (IMO) the center stand would need to be a bit taller.

I think this is because the ground clearance for the Valkyrie is higher than the Gold Wing.

(I am pretty sure the Gold Wing and F6B share the same center stand.)

Could you please clarify on why 18417-MCA-A20 is needed ? Does is play structural function or stand looks better with it ?

Thank you

The shield has a "dent" or scallop to allow the centerstand to go into the "up" position. Without the special shield the centerstand will go up only about 45 degrees.

I'm waiting for someone to actually buy the shield and make sure it works because I want to put my centerstand on all of the time, not just for maintenance.

That one probably will be me . Center stand is one of the best upgrades to have on any motorcycle.

Garage
I'm not new around a garage, but I'm finding it hard to get the exhaust shield off the left side for the center stand install. any PDF's showing the process?
