The battery above is still going strong however the terminal connections have loosened up three times now...and I've tried the standard fixes, star washers, thread locker etc. My guess is that the lead terminals get thinner from compression over time and that causes the loosening. (have had that experience wish tab washers on other bikes)
Anyway next time I'll go with a battery that does not require spacers or captive nuts...
