I would get the HD battery. You can get replacements from Sears, Pep Boys etc... but they SUCK.. I had a brand new one from R&S Strauss a few years back, did the full charge like they wanted, got to Myrtle Beach Bike Week fired up fine the 1st day, then that night I had my very low draw LED's on and it killed the P.O.S battery. Went to HD and bought one, I use my LED's all the time and it's still good today.. For the $20-30 you save it's not worth it...

Just bought one for my Road King here. Deka makes the HD battery.

99.00 delivered to my door was tough to beat.

I failed to ask about the brand, but i noticed that "Cycle Gear" offered a lifetime warranty on one of the battery brands they sell. This would be a great consideration if you plan on keeping the same bike forever!
I do plan on keeping the bike I currently have, so this might work for me! I'm definitely going to check into this when I do need a new battery.

If this is the one you saw notice that it is not a sealed battery like the OEM Deka's & is shipped dry and you will need to have acid put in it locally.

I replaced mine last year with the Harley Battery and only paid $99.00 at the local dealer even though the sticker said $149.00. Talk to the parts guy they will usually discount if you ask..

33% off at the dealer, that's hard to believe. Mine was going to be 139.00 @ the dealer.
