Ah the cat and fiddle, did that last year with Jay, Pete and Keri when we went for a trundle from the nabd rally. It was absolutely pissing down so we stopped at a tea room kinda place and the look's of horror on the faces of the genteel folk in there as we walked in will stay with me for a long time

The Varta equivalent is about 45 and I had one on. It lasted longer than the Harley one I had before.
Same spec,same size, slightly different terminals but fits OK

That 12N14 I used on the CB900f never cost me more that 15 a go, it was cheaper to buy a new one every year, than to buy an optimiser.

Gawd knows what the 1 on the 1050 sprints gonna cost me, if I ever need to change it
