There is a write up in sidexside this month on batteries I thought,
not sure which is the best.

The 925 will help. But only to extend your time of ride. And not by as much as you want it to.

You are pulling too much juice. Either get the second battery, or do an alternator. Both are a compromise to let you get a good night run, which is what you want.
