I purchased this accessory (2879388 - Battery Connection Cable) from local polaris dealer so I could add electrical accessories easily. I plan on installing this weekend. The dealer said to run the cables directly to the battery but the instructions say to wire to the starter solenoid. Any advice? Thanks

I read #8, I don't see any reference to hooking the cables directly to the battery. Doing so will work but it makes more of a bird's nest of cables at the battery. The job is much neater if you do as the instructions say, and you don't have to deal with extra cables when you replace the battery.
An additional benefit of hooking the the starter solenoid and chassis ground is that you won't be fighting corrosion of the terminals and cables if the battery pukes acid. IMHO, the fewer cables attached to a battery the better.
