Battery CCAs? Or Recommendations...

So my walmart el cheapo battery finally crapped the bed today after riding it to work. Had to get 3 jumps. I know its the battery because I have already replaced the R/R. Im trying to locate a strong battery to turn these big cylinders hot or cold and im not sure about the cold cranking amps required or the amp/hour. Anybody know or have any recommendations for a good battery that will fit in the stock location.

Thanks!

JUST posted in another thread. Hint: I searched for "battery" to find it again.

Just be sure it's only the battery... check voltage of the battery when off. Check voltage of the battery when motorcycle is on at idle. Check voltage of battery when with rpms up around 4k. This is the best way to be sure it's only the battery and will save you a ton of headache down the road if there is indeed something wrong with the electrical system other than the battery.

Thank you for this wealth of knowledge that you have graciously bestowed upon me. May the automotive gods look down upon thee with a wonderous eye. (insert sarcastic laugh right about here.....)
