Hello Everyone,
I was looking at the charging system on my motor and noticed it was rigged with the auxiliary charging connector run directly to the main battery terminals on the motor. This is not what is shown in the manual. Is this OK ? I run a basic 2 battery set up with a switch. Should I run a new aux kit directly to my battery number 2 ?

Factory setup puts both 25 amp outputs to the starter solenoid and charges up to 50 amps out of the battery cable. This will charge either #1 or #2 battery depending on battery switch position. Adding the aux charge lead as Seahorse pictured will charge both batteries at 25 amps with the switch in #1 position. With the switch in #2 position the #2 battery will get 50amp charge. The aux charge kit would be the best setup.

Thank you for clarification. I looked again yesterday and realized it was probably the original set up... I'm going to get the aux cable and change it soo.
