Debugging Harley LiveWire Bluetooth and iPhone Issues, Part 2

TLDR: So... like others, I am unable to use iOS Settings > Bluetooth to pair my Harley-Davidson LiveWire... the motorcycle doesn't even appear (making it impossible to pair with) or if it does appear, pairing usually fails.

H-D Connect on a LiveWire, Part 1

I'm in the process of setting up H-D Connect on my new LiveWire. It's a cool service that uses a cellular connection directly to the motorcycle to retrieve motorcycle status (like how much longer until the battery is charged), tamper alerts (like it the motorcycle is being jostled) and service-needed notifications. The service was available … Continue reading H-D Connect on a LiveWire, Part 1
