To start this off, I ordered a set of insulated terminals from Amazon.

They’re 5/16 stainless steel studs set in plastic bases that can be mounted on almost any flat surface.

Under the passenger seat/speed hump there is a cross brace that the seat bumpers rear on.

I drilled two tiny pilot holes and screwed the terminals to the cross piece.

Once mounted, I fabbed up some cables to go to the battery. To simplify how many connections I had directly to the battery, I relocated the pig tail for my charger to the new terminals.

I used some 6 gauge cable, crimped on some eyelet fittings and heat shrink wrapped the junction with some weather proof sealed heat shrink tubing.

The point of the mod is to eliminate the need to remove the riders seat anytime the bike needs a jump.

It’s not a huge deal to remove, but is a right PITA to reinstall. Now it just takes a key to remove the passenger seat or the solo cowl cover to access remote terminals for jump starting.

A little Corrosion X on the terminals and my Aprilia is all buttoned up and ready to go
