Gyus : While some people are going "Ape" over the wire size that is necessary to start (& receive charging) from our tiny HorsePower engines; one of the more important items is the connectors on those wires!!!
 
I've been criticized, but all of my wiring on Apache is both crimped and soldered for the best possible electrical connection!!  Maybe that's why my #4  Marine Grade wire does such a great job??    :clap

I haven't considered soldering but I will be using FTZ PowerLugs for all cable connections.

Donít forget to use a good quality crimper too.
