Thanks to everyone who responded. I have the same battery as Wildbill which I purchased from the dealer in California. By coincidence, before seeing Bill's pictures, I went out and bought the same cable fittings and I'm up and running. Even with these different fittings it is definitely a tight squeeze. I wasn't able to hook the Battery Tender leads due to space restrictions but I'm going to hook the leads up to the outside fittings which aren't used now. I hope this battery lasts a long time. Thanks again.

appears to be a very good battery with instant start up - even if left for several weeks.
