None of the chargers listed by Odyssey are suitable for here in OZ, so I bought one of these:
(sorry dunno what "sears" type is mate)
The PC680 I bought comes with 6mm threaded receptacle, bolts and "L" brackets that can be used. For my particular bike/setup, I used one "L" bracket on the negative terminal, and just used the 6mm Stainless bolts to attach the Positive terminals. I also added a small square flap of rubber from an old tube threaded through +ve cable to make a rough terminal cover for that terminal.
I also replaced the battery leads whilst I was there - made some up using cable and lugs from an Car parts store.
HTH (sorry for thread hijack!)
