I looked but I couldn't find the order I have somewhere that would tell us which battery I bought a few years ago.

It's a 12 volt, 14 amp/hour sealed AGM (absorbent glass mat) design and I thought the price was reasonable.

The thing I discovered is there are a lot of 14 AH batteries on the market but not too many with the correct physical case size.
Also, the battery I bought was available with the + and - terminals in two different positions so I had to check out my installed battery to make sure I was buying the one with the + terminal at the correct end.

Be sure to measure your existing battery case for width, length and height before you order. 
Like I say, there are a lot of batteries that have cases that won't fit a Royal Enfield.

   There are several threads here about batteries. This is just one:

  When I changed from the wet cell Yuasa I simply took it to Interstate Batteries and got a direct replacement AGM (Absorbed Glass Mat) unit for about $75. Slightly tighter fit, but have had no problems.
