Another battery question!!

I apologize for posting this!!
I need to replace my battery on my 2004.
The battery most people here suggest is the Yuasa YTX14AHL-BS
I found a few sources online to buy it. Seems to go for around $80.00.
When I type this part number into Ebay I get about 90 listings. Most of them list the exact part number I am looking for but most of them are from other manufacturers and the prices are anywhere from $30.00 to $60.00 to $100.00
I know that in regards to car batteries, regardless of what most people think.. there are only a few manufacturers of car batteries. They are private labeled but basically most of them are the same. For instance, the Duralast battery from AutoZone is the same battery as Sears sells.
Is this the same in regards to motorcycle batteries? Is the $30.00 battery on Ebay that is listed as a YTX14AHL-BS the same as the Yuasa battery?
I was also looking at the Big Crank ETX15L. I can get it for $71.95 with free ground shipping. It gets great reviews too! Thanks..

You can get the ETX15L from a local Advance Auto for about $45.
