This is an excellent AGM battery and will work perfectly with the CompuFire.

That Yuasa is definitely a good battery. Whatever battery you do put in, make sure it is an AGM (Absorbed Glass Mat), as your Compufire requires one.

We did have a couple people who had good experiences with the Chrome Battery AGM, and it's cheap! For the 1500 you want this one: http://www.chromebattery.com/motorcycle ... ttery.html
