Honda 919 Battery

My buddy is having is birthday this week, and he wanted a pair of goggles to use with his skid lid, and has made reference to wanting a biker bell in the past. The weather was great, so I decide that I want to take my 9er on the 40 mile trip.

Go to start the bike, bike almost turned over, but wouldn't start. I've had problems with my battery about a month ago, so decided I would buy a new battery while I'm at the motorcycle store.

At the checkout counter I inquire about the battery, and the douche behind the desk quotes me $135.00. I was like Uhhhhh no. So checking out Ebay, I see this: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Honda...spagenameZWD1V

Anyone have a better idea for a battery?

Thanks!

I'm not a big fan of brand x motorcycle batteries. They might be okay but does anyone here have facts on longevity? I prefer Yuasa batteries, yes they are more expensive but they do hold up for years and years if maintained properly. The 919 takes a YTZ10S Yuasa battery.
I found http://tiresunlimited.com/yuasa_batteries.htm selling it for $83.88. You might find a better price doing your own search.

do you have motorcycle salvage yard nearby? I got a battery out of a wrecked 05 last year so the battery was maybe 6 mos old... for 30 bucks.
