Battery terminals short?

I just installed a new battery for my CTR. I got the Bosch S4021. I've managed to install it but the positive terminal seems abit short? I think I have just about got a good grip on it but it's making me nervous! Anyone else had this problem? Can't get the battery lead right down the terminal because of all the stuff attached to the lead (stuff under the red casing). Anyone else had this problem? Is there any way I can extend the terminal so I can get a better grip on it?

Cheers

The problem is, there are S4 021 with different sizes of the terminals.

If you've chosen the wrong one, try to get another one, or you may add some adapter rings to the terminals, available at your local dealer.

Thanks, seems strange they have the same battery with different terminal sizes...

I'll try get some adapters, can you find any example ones on Google? (I can't)

Unfortunately, I failed on finding the rings, too.

I think you better ask your local dealer for car accessories about the rings.
He probably knows best what to do.
