Take a look at this one:

VARTA YT12B-BS

Good results from german TNT and Tornado drivers.

The standard battery warranty would end with the bike warranty but as Tostan said, toss the old battery out and replace with a Varta. They give a three year warranty on all batteries bought from a Varta supplier.

just to let you know, I had a battery go bad, as it was sitting on the floor for over 18 months, the dealer said that batterys were like tyres and brake pads, a consumable item, and hence too bad so sad. repalce it yourself

There is no battery on the market with a capacity of 14 Ah which fits for the Nellis.
The Yuasa YTZ14S has only a capacity of 11,2 Ah.
There is no battery on the market with a higher capacity.
Varta and Yuasa are the most selled aftermarket solutions, both with good experiences from german drivers. I would prefer the Varta, but it's your choice.

in theory the alternator should cope with all the xtras on my trek eg higher wattage lights heated grips when needed sat nav intercom etc i had all off this on the buell no probs .the battery going in is 11.2 ah so hopefully it will make a small differance over the oe battery . if a lager 1 was available i would have got it just for the extra starting boost ,i am also going to put another light switch in so i can turn them off on start up .

I've used Varta batteries, and have found them cheaper from the Varta supplier then others from bike dealers etc.

I would take battery warranties with a pinch of salt, if you allow it to stand in a discharged form the warranty *will not* cover it if the plates are sulphated.

Definitely get an Optimate or similar and keep it plugged in when not in use.
