Just wondering what these are on the side of the battery terminals ? My 1st guess is these are so I can attach my trickle charger to it without having to take off the top terminals.

I believe those are alternate connection points in case there isn't room in the battery box to attach from the top. (There's no way I could hook it up from the top like that on my motorcycle- It's a tight squeeze)

They would provide an excellent place to hook up your tender pigtail.

That's what I thought. And that's the situation I am in now. So i need to get some screws and then I can hook that up.

Chances are good that the battery you have was made as a universal fit. Back around 2000/2001 side terminal batteries were being promoted. If the maker intended for their battery to be compatible they would have included side terminal capabilities. The fact that it never really caught on is irrelevant. Use the extra connection point as you wish. To me, a tender connection point sounds like a good thing to do with it.
