I have a big ci motor in my Fatboy, 120ci and it has a lot of compression. The bike company that builds this recommends a Braille battery. I have been researching them and have good and bad reviews. I was also looking into a Big Boar. Does anyone have experience with these?

Never heard of Braille batteries yet. In the past I'd read of others with big motors such as yours running Optima batteries. It's also helpful to run larger and better quality battery cables to the starter. I'd bought a set of custom cables from a guy on www.harleytechtalk.com years ago that were made from high quality #2 guage welding cables. When my stock Harley starter went out a few years back it was much cheaper to buy an aftermarket high torque starter than it was to buy another HD stock starter; so there's another direction to go if you continue having starting difficulties.
