BMW Dealer
Westco W49-1209
measures 7" in length, 3" wide, 6.5" tall.
12Volt 20ah
Weight 14.5lbs
MSRP on Westco site: $99, $115 @ dealer.

or you could go to digikey.com:
Digikey.com
Panasonic LC-X1220P
measures 7.126 in length, 2.992" wide, and 6.575 tall.
12Volt 20Ah
Weight 14.56 lbs
$75+shipping(figure about $20-25)=$100

same dimensions, almost, and cheaper. I'll be going with Digikey when its time to replace. Best part? Same battery should work just fine for my 2004 R1150RT! Or if in a rush, I'll just get it at the dealer I guess.

HOWZABOUT A even BETTER deal??
I would check out the TOYO brand batteries from www.beiterbattery.com
the skinny /5 style battery is a perfect fit on the BMWs. 12v20p
I bought one 2 years ago and it is awesome!!!
Especially at $40.00 plus shipping!!!!!!!!!
Holy crap, it fits and works perfect!!!!
