I need a new battery, preferably US made. Apparently DEKA makes the OEM AGM battery from HD, but that's $110. Is there a good battery available elsewhere? Bike is an 05 XL1200R.
Supposedly PN is YTX14L-BS.

In my experience, the newer H-D batteries are about the best you can buy. They cost a little more, but in this case, you get what you pay for.

I love 1200r's , I had started wanting a nightster but read a coparo that covered the roadster and started looking. Found one in N.Ga, from a guy who owned a Euro dealership then sold out and liked harleys, had a garage full.
Best sportster HD made.

... Until they came out with the 2011 XR1200X.
Adjustable Showa suspension, Dual floating front rotors, Oil cooler and the EB belt tensioner as standard equipment. LOVE this thing.
