Well you have the battery and I assume it isn't returnable. The OEM Yuasa battery is a tough AGM Absorbed Glass Mat, designed for motorcycles where vibration and heat, high charge current etc comes into play, over 40 years with using this manufacturer , the average life has been 6 to 7 years. So that doesn't help you, some guys have gone with lithium batteries for weight saving at roughly 4 times the price, I really don't care about weight, before I spent 4 times that of AGM I would go on a diet.
Your photo is hard to tell if that is round posts or just how the new battery is made for connections, and I assume the positive terminal is at the red lead.If it is bolt on the same as original, you could get a piece of copper buss, cut to the same inside width then bolt in place as a spacer, anything else will just be bastardized and look it , I know the engine ground has zero give in it, in fact all wiring is on the short side on the 2015 and newer.
