Walmart MF Battery - which one?

Does anyone know which MF battery to get from Walmart?
I can't seem to track down the model number, etc, to get the right one.

I am looking into the Sears MF and found that one: DieHard Gold PowerSport Battery 14AHL-BS.

I am trying to find one locally so I don't have to order from online: seems to be the only option (for me anyways) for the WestCo (stock # 12V14L-B) and the Yuasa YTX14AHL-BS.

Aliens have feelings too!!!

I tried checking the walmart site and couldn't find a battery. I'll be very interested in your answers here. I feel the same way. I'd rather just go buy it and local choices are sears and walmart.

I was in WalMart looking to get a battery for my creaky old car [right size was out of stock, naturally] and looked at the motorcycle batteries up on top of the shelf. I don't remember the model number exactly, but the one with a part number similar to the Sears (a Yuasa) and Yuasa's own branded battery looked like it was the same size as the VN750's battery. It was 14-BS something....

K-mart will have (or can get) the Sears stuff too now, if you have one of those around.

I got my mf battery from auto zone. I had to wait till the next morning to get it but that wasn't a big deal. It was a Gel MF too.
