Does anyone know the correct jack points for a 2014 valk? This is my first valk and and I don't want to damage the bike. I located two threaded points in front of the rear wheel. Not sure what they are used for and wondering if it's a safe jack point? Thanks

That threaded location is where the center stand for the GoldWing or F6B is bolted on. There is at least one thread on this forum addressing that modification.
I used a jack similar to yours, to store the bike over the winter. My saddle for the inserts on top of the jack are V shaped and so I used appropriate metric bolts fastened into the threaded location to serve as the jacking points on the bike. FYI, the bolt on the RHS is left-hand threaded. Hopefully the saddles are far enough apart to provide a stable lift for the bike. Also, only the rear wheel is lifted off the ground using this procedure.

I made an adapter to put between my motorcycle lift and the bike. There is s thread on here about it. Many have made the same adapter.

Thanks... I feel better using that location for lifting the bike. Do you know if a F6B center stand could be added ?

Yes the center stand can be added los of used ones available, but you will also need to replace the left muffler cover.
Others have bought the heavy duty belly pan and use the pan for a lifting point.

I have a light duty pan to use an ATV lift to get the bike up on the car stands with no issue. Mind you I do it with some caution so probably not the best idea but it does work and have been doing it that way for years.
