Honda Valkyrie (2014-2015 F6C, Honda Gold Wing Valkyrie) Maintenance Schedule and Service Intervals

This is the maintenance schedule and associated service intervals for the Honda Gold Wing Valkyrie, a.k.a. the Honda Valkyrie (which is what we’ll call it here) made between 2014-2015 and with an 1,832cc engine. The Valkyrie is also known as the F6C or “Flat 6 Custom”.

The Honda Valkyrie is an upright muscle cruiser based on the Honda Gold Wing GL1800, or more precisely, an even more stripped-down version of the F6B, the “bagger” of the range.

There was an earlier Honda Valkyrie GL1500C based on the earlier GL1500 Gold Wing (and this isn’t that, but it’s the same general idea, though it looks totally different).

The base of the Honda Valkyrie is the same as that of the Gold Wing of its generation — a 1832cc, liquid-cooled, horizontally opposed six-cylinder, SOHC engine with PGM-FI.

The Valkyrie is a premium bike, but lacks the abundant chrome and blink of its similarly named predecessor, the Honda Valkyrie Rune.

About the Honda Gold Wing Valkyrie

Honda Valkyrie F6C Blue
Honda Valkyrie F6C Blue

The Honda Valkyrie is a modern cruiser or muscle bike that looks incredibly unique, and has a platform like nothing else in its class.

The Batman-esque fenders, unique fuel tank design, fat exhaust pipes, unique flat six engine, and touches of chrome give it a unique visual effect. Just go back and look at the gallery at the beginning of this article if you need more convincing.

The Valkyrie is propelled by an 1832cc, liquid-cooled, horizontally opposed six-cylinder, SOHC engine with Honda’s fuel injection system — the same as in the Gold Wing. The engine drives the rear through a five-speed transmission and low-maintenance shaft drive.

It’s a big heavy motorcycle, but it doesn’t feel it. The engine is flat, and mounted low in the aluminium twin-spar frame. Sitting on the bike, it’s totally non-intimidating and even at a standstill feels like a bike that’s much lighter than it is as you bob it from side to side.

The Honda Valkyrie is also customisable. You can make it into a bobber by removing the rear part of its two piece seat, and you can even attach bags to it if you want to have a bagger without having bought the F6B (though you’d still be short on a few comfort options).

The LED headlight, taillight, and turn signals give the Valkyrie a modern, super-clean look and provide fantastic illumination as well.

The Valkyrie has advanced suspension, too — a rear Pro Arm single-side swingarm with an adjustable Pro-Link single shock. Strong, lightweight (thanks to the hollow-spoke design) and super stylish, the Valkyrie’s wheels make a big statement and are an integral part of this bike’s great handling.
