Battery recommendations please

Hello.

Apparently, my battery auto-borked (won't trickle charge, won't give juice, doesn't make coffee or do the tapdance anymore) and I would welcome recommendations for a good VN750-friendly battery. It needs to be trickle-chargeable (I know some types of dry batteries aren't) and obviously reliable.

Winning recommendation earns contributor a brewsky first time we meet!

Any MF AGM style is good.

I got mine from batteriesplus.com, they have a local retail store near me, but they will ship for an online order.

Awesome, I'll check it out.

As a side question, are there hi-capacity batteries available / recommendable for VN750?

That's the same one I got. There's also a local shop of their's near me, so I just went there to get it.
It has the same specs as the stock Yuasa AGM, and more CCA than the Wesco.

As for high cap. ones, not much of anything larger will fit, but Hizzo rebuilt the battery box to fit a much larger battery. HERE is his post on it.
