I have a 05 moomba I want to put in a second battery with a switch the problem I have is that they used 2/o gauge wire from battery to starter and know one makes a eyelet clamp that big to go to a small post. Has anyone encountered this problem.

Yes, that is a common item that we offer. You just need a nickel-plated
2-ga terminal lug with a 5/16" I.D.

What I did was get a set of these:

I got them from a car parts store like Schucks or Auto Zone

They are threaded to screw onto those terminals on the back of the switch. I just drilled the rest of the way thru the terminal post, tapped it to match, and screwed it onto the back of the switch. This way I didn't need to modify the 2/0 cable and battery clamp that came stock. I had to cut the post down a little as it stuck out too far to mount the switch, but it being lead, it was really easy.

Not sure if that makes sense, but it's a super quick solution!
