Battery replacement

I think it is time to replace my battery. While I am at it I will be adding heated grips and a 12v plug for a GPS/Phone.

Any suggestions on a battery? What should I plan on spending?

Does anyone know what the standard battery that a 2010 KLR came with?

Thanks.

x2. About $70 and never have to check the water again. I used a "Magna Power" -which is the same as Deka. They're all made in U.S. by East Penn. ETX15L

I also replaced mine with the DEKA AGM. Nice not to have to worry about water/acid levels.

Just replaced mine over the weekend with an X2 Xtreme AGM battery from Batteries Plus. About $90 with tax, but has a 2 year free replacement.
