Hey Carl,
My 900 had a GS Brand GT12B-4 fitted to it originally.
I have replaced it with a Yuasa YT12B-BS, I went for the different brand because the original was very costly.

I have not had any trouble with the Yuasa however it is a bit early to have tested it properly so I will not recommend that you change brands if you can get the original battery for a reasonable price.

Maybe someone else can help with where to buy batteries on the net.
