Default Heavy Duty Battery Cables?

Can anyone suggest a place to look for real good battery cables?

I'm replacing my stock starter with an All Balls starter, and I want a set of cables that are way better than stock?

Thanks for any help.

I ended up ordering directly from All Balls, because none of the sites had a pair made for the 04 and up models.

The part numbers for the 04 and up are...

79-3011 for silver cables, 79-3011-1 for black.

You could always order a universal set and terminate them yourself, but I wanted a set made by the pros for my year bike.

The black ones were $31.22 plus shipping. I believe that they are 1300 strand 4 gauge flexible cables.

Jimmy I'm sure you're right that I'll need the compression releases, but this was a much cheaper and easier way to start. If I had gotten the CR's first I would've ended up wanting a better starter anyway.
