Not that side, ding dong! Maybe I'm rubbing off on you as well...
If there is a vent hose on the battery, then more than likely it is a "wet" battery - you have to add water when it gets low. The numbers don't sound like a gel cell / sealed type of battery. I can tell you a good number for a Yuasa MF battery is YTX14AHL-BS.
As to the stalling problem, what kind of oil are you using? The only reason I bring this up is that we've had quite a few discussions about Energy Conserving additives, and I wonder if this might be a side effect of high rotational speeds. Is it at 70mph, specifically, or is it at 5000 rpms, in any gear?
