I did mine in March, took about 15 minutes with simple hand tools. Easy Peazy.

Be sure to pass the new cable through the ‘loop’ that monitors current/voltage flow. Other than that it’s pretty straight forward, just connect both ends like the original.

During install I ran into a small glitch. The new cable did not have the small threaded-stud side terminal on the battery end. A small secondary ground cable attaches to this post.

I tried to remove the stud from the old cable using vise grips but no joy.

So I dug through the tool box and found an old jet ski battery battery bolt. It fit perfectly into the threaded hole.

GREEN - New cable installed with jet ski battery bolt

So just a note, if you order a cable online be prepared to ‘modify’ as needed to attach the small secondary ground cable at the battery end should yours come the way mine did.

I ran into that same glitch. I just took the old battery cable to my local hardware store, measured the thread on the stud, and paid like 14 cents for a screw that matched it.
