Need new battery for 07 K1200R...recommendations?

I noticed the OEM is a ETX14-BS. Does it matter if I get a YTX or BTX? And does it raelly matter what manufacturer I get or if it's an AGM or the type that comes with liquid electrolytes? Any recommendations for what battery I should get? Anything wrong with these batteries?

Thanks.

P.S. I live in TX (hot) and ride maybe once a week if it's not too scorching. Bike spends most of it's time during the summer hooked up to a CTek battery tender.

Cool. I'll look into the Odessey. Where can I get one for a good price? Thx.

Westco Platinum. Had mine for three years without any problems. Bike is stored during the winter with a Deltran trickle charger on the battery. Bike always starts right up and has never left me stranded due to a battery issue.

I just put in a Yuasa YTX14H-BS, under 80 bucks and starts like a champ.
