888 Gel Battery availabilty

My Battery is goosed and am looking at a replacement.I would like a Gel Battery first of all,secondly is there one small AND man enough for the job that will clear the engine bolt/mount to the left of the battery so i can fit frame bungs like R&G?

At the moment,they are not an option as the battery covers the engine bolt hole.

The main thing though is a replacement battery and where from?

Ok Bud,

I tried one of the Odessey PC680 batteries in the past but for what ever reason my bike didnt like it - great item though - but a bit heavier than lead acid I believe:
