Hi Buster, you could try one of these: http://cgi.ebay.com.au/GEL-12V-BMW-M...ht_4555wt_1026

Just check the measurements. I am using a smaller version and have had no problems.

I am actually currently using a wheel chair battery. It has the correct Ampres is 12v and is sealed. It is a little small in the battery pan but it has lasted a bit over 4 years now, including a 2 1/2 year storage (while connected to the bike). Charged it up a few months ago and haven't had an issue using it yet. I'll get the model and make for you in the next day or so. The cost was under $60 U.S. including shipping (to the states).
