little more than the AGM, 11 amp-hr vs. 10 amp-hr. The ones I got had the same
footprint but were about 3/4" lower in height thus easier to get in. I am not
sure of the brand, I will have to check tomorrow in the shop.

can we use a gel type battery? Is it worth the money? Will it do any harm? I
can get one for under $75.

think it is about time for a new one. When I try to crank the bike it is a
little slow. Not sure if this could be the starter or not. I have a volt meter
on the bike and it is showing 12.3 volts with just the switch on and the engine
off so I think that is Ok. I have done the wiring fix and that has helped
stablize the voltage.
