If your not part of the Harley racing team, which Harley has dropped out of for 2021, don't post pics like this. This is how and why the MoCo considers denying belt replacement warranty. The LiveWire was not designed to smoke rear tires. Diego you should not be promoting this sort of activity being a voice of the Livewire community.

Hi Mack very true this is a great teaching moment ...

Here are some excerpts from the vehicle warranty.

This limited warranty will not apply to any electric motorcycle which:
  1. Has not been operated or maintained as specified in the Owner Manual.
  2. Has been abused, neglected, misused (e.g., wheelies, stoppies, burnouts), improperly stored, used “off the highway,” or used for racing or competition of any kind.
  3. Has had stock components (e.g., duct work, covers, fairings, fender(s)) that impact the overall vehicle performance, including airflow during operation, removed or altered.
  4. Is not equipped to comply with the laws of the market in which it is registered.
  5. Has off-road or competition parts and or software (SW) installed to enhance performance, a trailer hitch, or has other unapproved modifications (even if these modifications include genuine Harley-Davidson® parts and accessories that are not approved for use on your motorcycle). These modifications may void all or parts of your new motorcycle limited warranty. See an Authorized LiveWire™ Dealer for details.
  6. Has been subjected to an act of God, war, riot, insurrection, nuclear contamination, natural disasters, including, but not limited to, lightning, forest fires, dust storms, hail storms, ice storms, earthquakes, or floods, or other circumstances out of Harley-Davidson’s control.
  7. Has been in an accident, collision, dropped or struck.
This limited warranty does not cover:
  1. Parts and labor for normal maintenance as recommended in the Owner Manual, or the replacement of parts due to normal wear and tear including, but not limited to, the following: tires, lubrication, coolant, battery maintenance (both operating battery and RESS), brake (pads & rotors), belt adjustments and belt replacement.
  2. Cosmetic concerns that arise as a result of owner abuse, lack of proper maintenance or environmental conditions (except concerns that result from defects in factory materials or workmanship, which are covered by this limited warranty for the duration of the limited warranty period).
  3. Any cosmetic condition existing at the time of retail delivery that has not been documented by the Authorized LiveWire™ Dealer prior to retail delivery.
  4. Defects or damage to the motorcycle caused by alterations outside of Harley-Davidson factory specifications or caused by alterations or use of parts or accessories not approved for the make and model year of your motorcycle.
  5. Damage caused by installation or use of non-Harley-Davidson components, even those installed by an authorized Harley-Davidson dealership that causes a Harley-Davidson® part to fail. Examples include but are not limited to performance-enhancing powertrain (gear box) components or software, including tuners, altered gear & sprocket ratio(s), non-approved tires (changing the rolling radius), lowering kits, tow packages, certain flag mounts, handlebars, add-ons connected to the factory electrical system, and so on.
  6. Abuse or misuse associated with operation, including:
    1. Defects due to either ignoring warning lights display or by not immediately seeking service at an Authorized LiveWire™ Dealers.
    2. Running without factory certified fluids (coolant and lube).
    3. Use of charge plugs not meant for the vehicle conversion kits and non-certified Electrical Vehicle Supply Equipment (EVSE) will void the warranty to the system.
    4. Extension cords used in conjunction with the EVSE (from an outlet to the EVSE) are not covered by the limited warranty.
      1. The EVSE must be plugged directly into a wall outlet to properly charge.
      2. Bypassing any of the charging/EVSE safety features will void the system warranty.
Important: Read Carefully
  1. Authorized LiveWire™ Dealer(s) are independently owned and operated and may sell non-Harley-Davidson products. Because of this, HARLEY-DAVIDSON IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR THE SAFETY, QUALITY, OR SUITABILITY OF ANY NON-HARLEY-DAVIDSON PART, ACCESSORY OR DESIGN MODIFICATION INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, LABOR WHICH MAY BE SOLD AND/OR INSTALLED BY AUTHORIZED HARLEY-DAVIDSON DEALERS.
  2. This limited warranty is a contract between you and Harley-Davidson. It is separate and apart from any warranty or service plan you may receive or purchase from an Authorized LiveWire™ Dealer. An Authorized LiveWire™ Dealer is not authorized to alter, modify, expand, or in any way change the terms and conditions of this limited warranty.
  3. Any warranty work or parts replacement authorized by Harley-Davidson will not preclude Harley-Davidson from later relying on any exclusion where applicable.
  4. Harley-Davidson and its Authorized LiveWire™ Dealer reserve the right to modify or service motorcycles designed and manufactured by Harley-Davidson at any time without incurring any additional obligation to make the same alteration or change to a motorcycle previously built and sold. Harley-Davidson reserves the right to provide post-warranty repairs, conduct repair campaigns, offer good-will or customer satisfaction repairs or extend the warranty coverage for certain motorcycles at its sole discretion. Said repairs or extensions of warranty coverage in no way obligate Harley-Davidson to provide similar accommodations to other owners of similar motorcycles. Sometimes Harley-Davidson may offer a special adjustment program to pay all or part of the cost of certain repairs beyond the terms of your limited warranty. Check with your Authorized LiveWire™ Dealer to learn whether such programs are available. Your state may prohibit these types of offers, in which case, they may not be available.
  5. The fact that a part is labeled or branded Harley-Davidson® does not necessarily make it appropriate or warranted for the make and model of the motorcycle. The use of parts not designed and tested for the motorcycle may have negative consequences on the performance of the motorcycle and may create conditions not covered by the limited warranty.
Environmental Factors
  1. Warranty will cover rust/corrosion and/or pitting on one component, one time only, under appropriate conditions. If a vehicle is exhibiting any of these conditions on more than one component, warranty coverage will be denied.
  2. Warranty will cover rust/corrosion and/or pitting on multiple components only if they are the same component (i.e. both mirrors, both rider footboards, etc.)
  3. Warranty will not cover rust/corrosion and/or pitting on wheels at any time unless condition had been properly documented in the DPQA. For warrantable conditions see Cosmetic Quality Guide.
  4. Warranty will not cover rust/corrosion and/or pitting as a result of damage from road debris, hazards, neglect, chemical exposure or abuse/misuse of the motorcycle.
THE WARRANTY WILL VARY IN OTHER COUNTRIES


Do this type of activity at YOUR OWN RISK in my case the pic was taken with my 1st livewire for a promotional video for a Harley Davidson Dealership which I was being compensated for under an agreement.

Not how I saw it....and the demographics of those of us who can afford to drop $25-30K on such an extreme toy would suggest that the majority are not out burning up the tires and doing wheelies - or setting records at the drag strip. I thought the pictures were pretty cool. Exposing the performance characteristics of the LiveWire are essential to drive interest in electric bikes. My concern is that HD abandons this platform altogether as it is outside their constituency (as they did the revolution engine). Recent commentary on 2022 models that lacks mention of the LW bolsters this concern. I hope that Serial 1 continues to pull some element of HD in this direction (LW transfer to Serial 1??). But the point is that Diego is out in front showing off the remarkable capability of this bike and hopefully it will awaken a latent curiosity that will bring people in to try it out.
