    Ha, when I replaced my battery for the first time the battery bolts were both tight. However, the first time I inspected my brake pads I discovered that the right front wheel lug nuts were barely more than finger tight. WOW!! why they never came completely loose I have no idea. Many many years ago that happened to my truck after I'd purchased new tires. Luckily I felt the vibration before the wheel came off. Had to replace the studs and the bolts and the wheel. All at the tire shop's expense. Poopo happens from time to time.

    Are batteries installed at BRP or are they installed by the dealer?
