go to lowes and get some alligator clips and wire. that stuff is handy to have anyway

Then just clip one end to the straight post and the other clip to the battery?

That will work. You will need 4 alligator clips and enough wire to position the meter so you can see it.

Someone else may have a better solution, but that will work. Or charge up the batteries and let it rest for 2 hours. Take readings of each battery and record. Go for a decent ride and check again. If you have a bad battery it may show up that way.

The best way is to load test, though.
