You get what you pay for, $26.00 bucks for a battery, is a bit less than what I would expect.
Good luck either way.

Just last month I replaced the stock battery that came in my 2003 Honda Sabre (I bought the bike new). That battery lasted almost 12 years and I only replaced it because it was getting weak. I should mention that I've ridden that bike almost every day since I bought it (except for a ten month period when I was in jail), I live in socal with no freezing winters, and I didn't run any accessories off the battery, so all of that likely contributed to the battery's long life.

That stock battery was a Yuasa YTX14H-BS. I bought the same battery to replace it, $93 at a local shop.

Now there is some sage advice, YUSA has worked for me for lost of bikes. Once again figure out your COLD Cranking Amps need..

Batteries and Bulbs Plus has a good battery that generally outperforms stock Harley batteries. I think the two year replacement warranty is positive as well.
