Hard (impossible) to start

Battery is about 1.5 years old, but it was a Wal-Mart battery (all I could afford at the time).
I'm wondering if a gel battery will improve its chances.

How old is your battery?  I found that I had to replace my battery in the 
GPz every 3 years on average.  The bike doesn't like a low battery or a weak 
one even if it is fully charged.  One thing you can try to check is to try 
to jump start the bike with your car or truck.  If it fires right up invest 
in a new battery.
