I could be wrong, but I think the Harley tire is bias ply and the OEM on the Valkyrie is radial. It that is correct, I'm not sure it would be a good idea to use the Harley tire.

There are many dealers selling the F6B for $5000 off MSRP. They might be selling a lot of them in some parts of the country, but I think overall it's a flop. Good new for me though since I want one.
