Another Harley Edition Exclusive

The Harley-Davidson edition Superduty has many "unique" features and after 5 years of ownership, I just learned of another.

I discovered I had a slow leak on my left rear tire last Sunday so I took it to Sam's Club to get it fixed. Well, they diagnosed it as the metal valve stem leaking and showed me same. They then told me that they don't have or use that type of valve stem and that I'd have to take it somewhere else. So, yesterday I took it to a very reputable full service tire store. The owner came to me and explained that my valve stems are unique and asked where I got the wheels. When I told him they were factory, he said I would probably have to go to the dealer. What do you bet that's not a stock item...

Whelp, I called the parts department at the Ford dealership and told my story. He sounded skeptical that there was anything unique about the valve stems.....until he took a look in the parts book. He said, "by golly it does show a different number than our typical valve stem, but you're not going to believe this, before I can go any further I need your VIN".... I asked, "for valve stems???" He chuckled and said, "yes sir".

Anyway, they'll be here Tuesday and retail for 6.05 each....I ordered two.

Thats exclusive to the Harley trucks. I had to replace an inner door handle on one, and I needed the vin for that.

I think its a Harley licencing issue. You have to verify that its actually a Harley truck. Many items are exclusive to Harleys.
