Anyone know if you can use a Motorcycle Lift on a Livewire? I am thinking about getting JS Jacks lift for my Road Glide and was wondering if this would work for a Livewire too.

I dont think that it would work...or more accurately I dont know the lift points. Why would you need to lift?

I’ve decided to keep my current bike and get a LiveWire as a second . I’ll have to wait until the 2021 models come out (fingers crossed for Level 2 charging). Until then I saving my pennies. I assume 2021 models won’t be announced until January. I’m hopeful that the tax credit is still in effect.

I think you will be happiest with that decision - keeping your RG and adding a LW. That is the best HD combo I can imagine. As for L2 charging, I get you concern...just has not materialized for me. My other bikes are feeling neglected

I can't find the leak source, and it is apparently slow. I filled up and took it for a short ride last night (<5 mile). after the ride was showing ~ 1 psi higher (as expected from heating up), then this morning after about 14 hours the pressure was down to about 33. I ordered Ride on, so i am going to try that instead of dropping hundreds to replace the tire

Found the leak - little soapy water does the trick. it was a small metal nail right dead center. I decided to put in a stop and go plug (super easy and will be carrying these on all my bikes) and so far appears to be holding well.

The kit said to not use with a steel belted tire...anybody know if these tires are steel belted? I could not find info anywhere about the Michelin Scorcher Sport that is used with regard to construction. I plan to ride with the plug as long as possible.

When you put the plug in, you would of notice if it had steel in it. As long as it is holding, donot worry about it.
