Retail price is around $100 for a Yuasa (very good brand). Motorcycles Unlimited can check the charging system and install the new battery for you.

Check the web site or their forum for hours. www.motorcycles-unlimited.com

The charging system works off a stator/ rotor on the crank, which sends power to a regulator/ rectifier, and eventually to the battery; essentially.

A way to test to see if your system is working is to use a meter on the battery while it's running. If it gives ~13.8v or more, it's charging.

For a battery to just "up and die" like that is actually possible, especially if it's not ridden regularly or if you're not using a battery tender.

Motorcycles Unlimited should be able to run all the tests for you, most of the time, they don't charge you to diagnose. Check by the shop and talk to Patrick and the lot.

Another option is autozone (about 65). But I wouldn't recommend those.
