battery ground rework ???
« on: August 30, 2014, 11:12:21 pm »
Has anyone replaced the battery ground bolt with a stud and nut  and then we will not be screwing steel bolts into the alloy frame...which will eventually cause problems

or a quick disconnect for the ground wire??

I had a 2008 c14 and never had a problem with that mechanical connection.  I had the bike for several seasons and had removed and inserted the bolt that you are referring to many times without a problem.   

My 2012 c14 has also had the bolt that you refer to removed several times without a problem.  I usually use a thin layer of copper grease made for electrical connection on the threads.

I think that you are looking for a problem where none exists.

Jim, if you'd like, I can send you a small amount of copper based anti-seize compound. I have a decent sized can that will last me 2 or 3 lifetimes. It's high grade stuff that was left over from an experiment at work.
I could put in enough for several uses in a zip-lock bag and stick it in an envelope.
