Battery tender question

I just got a Deltran battery tender jr and i want to hook up the wire that stays on the battery (vs. the alligator clips) so I can run the wire up to the storage area and plug it in without removing the seat. The instructions say that if you hook up the tender with the battery still in the mc you need to hook up the negative lead to a ground on the bike's frame. Trouble is I can't find a nice bolt to attach the negative lead to. Is it ok to put the positive/negative terminals on their corresponding battery posts and leave them there?

Yes...but you will have some corrosion buildup on the terminals so remember to grease em good and check em every month or so.

I always hook it up straight to the battery and have never had any corrosion build up.
