OK, I'm on a tight budget so I searched for the cheapest AGM I could find and this is what I ended up with.....
http://www.batterystuff.com/powersports-batteries/sYTX14AHL-BS.html

Got it in Feb, wanted to give it a little time before I gave it a review.
I actually got it before the bike was running and before I figured out all the special intricacies of our common addiction. Very soon after she was runnin' good I figured out how to lock the forks but didn't figure out the difference between locking key left and locking key right. Yea, the battery went completely dead. But, new battery and all, I charged her back up and haven't had her on a charger or tender since. I have relocated the R/R but as far as I know everything in the charging system is original. I have 12.95volts with ignition off, 12.5+ volts at idle, and 14.5 to 14.95volts over 2000 RPMs. 6months this battery has given me nothing to complain about. $66 including shipping. Seems like a pretty good deal.
12 month warrantee as well.

Great, I think we need more than a couple of reviews to mark these guys as great, but as I've said, I've had good luck so far. The website sure talks great service - if I remember right, shipping was pretty quick too. I believe they shipped the same say I ordered.

There are a ton of discussions and opinions about batteries....no surprise right?

I know nothing about this brand, so I'll hold on giving my opinion.
Hopefully it is not a cheap knock off from China....those were problematic in the past.

If it is an AGM for that price and you get 2 or 3 years out of it, then in my opinion you did pretty well.

I have the DEKA branded AGM that I paid 60 bucks for after haggling, and after 1 full riding season and one off season of sitting in an unheated shed uncharged, I am confident in the quality of that brand and would recommend it to anyone.

Let us know how this brand works out for you.

well i got here today, was shipped priority mail and was ready to go. i dont have a meter and can only rely on the racetech leds. at about 1500 rpms its at 13.25 volts. ill try to remember my meter and get a true reading.
there was a wet deka in there and im glad i decided to change it, the fluid was at the correct level, but the ends were starting to cave in.
