just about any AGM you find on the shelf will do a good job.
Walmart batteries are good enough.

here is a list of AGM batteries to choose from.

There are only about 3 battery manufacturers in the states, nearly all of the off labels come from the same place.


This one will give you good performance.

350 CCA and the best price of them all.

at $72 free shipping, how can you go wrong, I have bought two of them, no issues after 5 years, still going.

This is the one I got for mine.


If you notice, the old battery was a 18, not a 24


I got it off Amazon for $60 USD. It's been in use since October 2018, with no issues.

I also have the Mighty Max High Rate Gel-Series, purchased from Amazon in my 1984 GL1200A. It stopped holding a charge after 18 months but the company replaced it for free. The replacement has been in service for 6 months now with no issues.

yes, it has a nice case on it, but for half the cost, this battery performs the same

The one I bought in 2004 for our trike with C-u-F Alt. was used up into 2019, it left here in the 1200 I sold then, it's still doing the job. I replaced it in the trike about 2016, bought one for the 1200 too but misplaced it come time to sell the 1200. I found it last year sitting behind some stuff, it's for my generator now. I only paid like $104 shipped from a 4WD place on line, they run a lot of good deals. The one bought in 2004 was nearly the same at a Battery Plus store in Harrisonburg, Va. I think that's a pretty good experience.
