Look into one for a CBR1000 it will give you some added cranking amps.
As for brand or style of battery that has been an ongoing debate. Some like Gel, Glass mat, or now the Lithium Ion ones. You really want to get some type of sealed battery not some cheap acid battery from walmart.

cjones0007,
All good advice above and by-all-means keep it on a 'Battery Tender' when you the machine is not in use.

What's the best value for a battery? Also does a lithium battery require a special charger? They seem to be pretty pricey....
