My Valkyrie

NOTICE - This is not a catalog.  These goodies are not for sale here - except Horseapple exhaust systems and my Highlighter.  This is what I put on my bike.  These are things you might want to put on your bike too.  If you want them, you will have to buy them from a retailer, like I did.

Black Beauty, a '98 black standard acquired in June '97, with 98,000 miles as of March 2011, has evolved to it's present state.  This page is mostly bolt-on stuff other than the tech projects documented on the Tech Tips page.  Some have been replaced with others I liked better, but I included the earlier versions.  Mostly latest mods on top.

I had an incident with two muley bucks June 15 '01.  Resultant damage to Black Beauty, now named Deerslayer, came to $13,000.  It's all fixed now - you can read what happened here.

These prices are current MSRP or from www.DNKMotorcycle.com  as of 12/9/99 when I could find it quickly, or what I paid when I couldn't - figure they are approximate, YMMV.  The links here are to the manufacturer so you can read about the products, to my articles or other Valk enthusiasts' web sites for more info, or to online retailers.  No doubt some of the links are broken by now. Generally the best place to buy parts is a retailer, who is more likely to discount than the factory.  But now that many parts are discounted - just finding them for sale is a win.  Discounts - not likely anymore.  I've bought several things from Hal at the VRCC, I got good prices & delivery speed while they were still sponsoring the VRCC web site.  Check the links page for other online retailers I'm happy with. A lot of these products are no longer available, new.  So many aftermarket makers quit making products for the Valk when Honda discontinued it in 2003.  But you may still find them online, or from private sellers.  Check the boards, and online want ads, particularly at the VRCC and the VOAI.  Ebay is another good place to look, as well as Mike terry's site at www.valkyrieblingandmore.com 

Disclaimer - a listing here does not constitute an endorsement of these products - it's what I have on my bike (though some companies and products listed here are superior to others).  It will take a couple minutes to download all the icons here, which as always link to enlargements.
