    Where can I buy this kind of battery cable lug?

    I need a longer Battery cable for my x2 gen 2, I purchased the OEM cable, but It's still too short for my aftermarket hull.
    Where can I buy this kind of battery cable lug?
    I cant seem to find it anywhere, I've looked on the interwebs for it.... nothing. and local shop owners look at me weird when I inquire about it.

    It is standard on all my jetski's, but non-existent online. wtf!
    Any help is appreciated!

    Can you just use the common small battery ring terminal? That's what I use when I have to fix one.

    Those lugs are OEM only & are garbage when used with certain batterys.

    Just use std ring terminal lugs like Myself said.

    Re: Where can I buy this kind of battery cable lug?

    I was afraid of it being OEM only...I really don't understand how it's garbage when used with certain batteries.. other than the tin rearing off.
    I like using them because they fit snug and straight every time on the terminals.
    but yeah, it looks like i'm gonna have to use the standard ring lugs..... unless I can find 3 foot OEM battery cable.

    Thanks guys.

    I will try to explain , if used on a typical lead acid battery like in the first photo below its fine , it fits neatly over the battery post and locks in, no problem. The problem comes into play when you try to install a sealed BATTERY like the ETX 16L in the second photo , now you have to twist the battery terminal 180 degrees to even hook it up, naturally cables don't like to be twisted and resist doing so all while you are trying to put in the battery bolts = those terminal suck a$$ !

    An Odyssey or the like with threaded studs for posts would be an issue, but it could probably be flipped over in a pinch. If you could find them I bet you wouldn't like the price. I agree with the others.

    Yeah, I'm convinced.. even though i'm using this wire on a very specific application.. going to a very specific UASA 12v 13 ah sealed battery... i'm just gonna get a 2 gauge marine cable with the standard tin ring terminals. Amazon has them in the 36" size I need.

    Thanks again!

    haha! too much? Its not a v8 or a diesel... 4 gauge would suffice for a 800 cc 2 stroke?
