Makita template guide does not fit
My Makita router arrived with a couple of template guide bushes of different sizes. The size of guide bush chosen for use with a particular template will be dictated by the template - stock templates usually state the size of guide to be used with that template and mostly these are generally so common sizes a good router is supplied with them, from memory I think the smaller of my guides is something like 17 mm.
Template guide bushes are flimsy and easily damaged and so it is expected router users will be buying spares and other sizes. They are almost universal but not quite and router users are quite adept at minor modifications to make things fit, and not just guide bushes but also router tables, adaptors for various tasks and so forth.
I suggest you take a glance through a few catalogues featuring router accessories, including Makita of course.

It has to be shook each time i use it, also can the battiers stay on charge when not in use?
If you have a machine with a li-ion battery it MUST me placed as soon as it stopped on the charger and leaf them on the charger and as soon as they get slowing down the rpm of the machine change the battery it has no memory effect or capacity problem Everything opposite to compare with nickel cadmium batteries ,and that because of the old Makita machines with only have 2 battery connectors are now for 60% modified with a 3 (star)contact battery holder by Makita if it was in warranty time by Makita, the switch and contact plate are modified because of the deep discharge protection of makita because it new (star) li-ion batterys have been allways by every brand on protected against discharge with a similar or comparable protection with a small circuit with a refference power on it , a li ion battery can be boosted with a special cadex charger that will bring back the referrenced power so the charger will if boosted working again on the battery . but if your machine shooks has to do with a contact or soldering problem om the switch possibly or to short carbon brushes but not by the battery .
