For some reason my battery terminals are naked/exposed.
I guess they are safe as the tank is plastic as is the seat, still be nice to have them semi encapsulated.
Ordered a pair of battery caps off Amazon, didnt seem to be many vendors except the chinese knocking them out. Batteries are a chinese thing though.
Thought these looked great as sort of square and decent slot to maybe get the cable and terminal thru.

The 2 pound coin is for size as pretty close to actual size of the connected terminal.

Uhm aren't most of them? I've never had a battery with protected terminals and really as long as you don't store a loose wrench under the seat what on earth is going to cause a short? Wink

Nothing wrong with that, especially the Positive one.
Always disconnect the Negative first and reconnect it last.
You will appreciate why if ever you are using a wrench on the Positive terminal and it accidentally touches the chassis.

Not a lot of extra room in the GRiSO's battery "compartment".
