There have been a few threads on batteries and boosting issues, so I thought I'd show what I added to make boosting (if ever necessary) a lot easier. I have the CAMEL ADV Skidplate, which does an even better job of protecting the battery, but makes access a real pita when needed...
I built an aluminium brackets and mounted isolators, then ran 6g wire from the battery to the studs. I also moved the tender harness to there for convenience. The 3/8 and 5/15 studs also make connecting clamps much easier and give better contact. Using 6g wire also means I never have to worry about current load.

Nice, I have a Camel ADV bash plate on mine too and sometimes wonder how much I'll dread having to take it off at some point to access the battery. I presume (?) yours has a pre-wired battery tender connection underneath the seat too, for easy access you can drop it out the left side of the bike, in between the frame, and leave it there.

I built it. I was left unsupervised over the winter.... 🤷🏼‍♂️ There's a thread on it under "What have you done to your PA today" ... There's been "a few" modifications to the bike🤣

I would be curious to know details about the specific components you used to create the boost posts.

Thanks!
