Correct Battery?

Edit: Found a place while I was an hour a ay from home. Went with a Deka ETX30L

Learning a hard lesson, don't let your motorcycle battery die while in another country. While it was being transported, the moving company never unhooked my battery to my 2007 RG FLTR and the alarm went off for 2 months everytime it moved.

Now I have 2 options; 1. Pay Harley 265 euro, which is ridiculous. 2. Find a place around my location and buy from them.

I'm trying to go with option 2, and since Harley kept my dead battery I can't compare it. Is this the correct battery for my bike?

I tried selecting 1580cc, but it didn't have my year RG.

No advice on your battery, but next time you ship it, look in your owners manual for "Transport Mode". It temporarily shuts off the alarm with a few simple steps.

Thank you, I ended up an hour away at an Ikea for the wife and decided why not try and find a battery shop, luckily it was a 10 minute drive from Ikea and after googling I ended up getting a Deka ETX30L which saved me 100 euro.

I've used transport mode several times on both bikes works great or pull the 50amp fuse witch I've also done !
