Custom Battery cables

2013 February 25

Due to relocating the battery I had to make some custom battery cables. One has to run from battery (located in the tail section of the seat) to the starter and the negative cable will most likely ground on the transmission near the shifter instead of at the speedometer cable.

I bought some #4 Welding cable. It is a nice and thick gauge wire, and flexible.

I stripped the wire and found a few different sized terminals. This terminal end will connect to the battery.

Pre-Crimping. FWIW, this crimper is really heavy and cumbersome but works pretty good.

In addition to the positive wire that connects to the starter, I made a small positive lead to connect to the main harness positive lead. I used the same crimper and it came out great.
