Starter & battery for S&S 113 ci

Hi there,
Just bought a S&S 113 CI engine with no compression releases.
What is the best starter and battery to go with the 113?

It's replacing an original Evo engine with original starter.

Thanks.

Not knowing the frame , Softail , Dyna , Touring etc. for battery size , I'm partial to the H-D batteries because the terminals have different attachment locations and are the AGM style . I would go with nothing less than a 1.4 kw starter , preferably a 1.7 kw from Spyke or Volt Tech . I would also upgrade the battery cables to something like the Terry Components Flexy cables . Another thing I suggest is to get rid of the stock ring and pinion gears in favor of the 9/84 or 9/66 gear set that'll give your new starter more oomph and stronger gear teeth . Kinda like taller gears in the rear axle of a hot rod . I would also install a stiffer clutch diaphram spring to keep the clutch plates clamped together under the extra torque generated by the 113" !

Have someone machine for releases, as starter issues will be there, sooner, or later.
Harley starters, or Tech Cycle starters, and Harley batteries or Interstate.
