This is my first bike and I don't know much about what I'm doing, as you'll see.
I have a 1982 305 CSR that I think needs a jump start. I have a set of jumper cables for the bike (smaller clamps than car cables). I've managed to find the battery itself (yeah, I'm really ignorant about these things) but the red (live) battery terminal is pretty inaccessible and there's no way that I can see to get the jumper cable clamp to that side of the battery. I'm sure I'm missing something basic here, but I don't know what it is. If anyone can help on this really basic level, I'll be grateful.
