Anybody know how long Livewire battery keeps charge if bike is stored? Better to keep it plugged in or not if storing for a month? Any risk of overcharging?

according to the manual, top it up to 70% (keep it between 30-70%) and you should be good.
Check on it remotely to see if it's getting close to 30%... but to be honest, it takes a LONG time to trickle/drain.

It's MUCH simpler to "store" this bike, for sure!

You can also find all this info in the owners manual on page 128 and 129.
Hope that helps

I agree, mine has been stored since November 26th, 2020. Put it away at 68%, I check my app every few days still at 68%. As already mentioned by others, manual says between 30% and 70% for storage. If it drops, charge it back between these. This is for if you aren’t using for over a month. In the summer time, leaving It plugged in should be fine as far as I have read.

I live in Michigan and I have not plugged my LiveWire up since mid November and it is at 97%. I keep it in my non heated garage. I do check it everyday just to see if it's holding it's charge. I know it's a over kill, but what can you say, it's new, and very little is known about the LiveWire.
