Battery cable thicker gauge

Has anyone replaced their battery cables or upgrade to a thicker gauge? back when I had my mid 90s Ducati monster I replaced that bike's battery cable to a 4GA and it helped out a lot interms of quicker ignition and the bike just seemed "happier" with the additional current.

On the 919?

No need as far as I can see. Cranks fine and fires up immediately.

no need. Besides, how much less resistance are you gonna get up sizing? not by much. not to mention the length of the wire isnt much,(more wire = more resistance and larger wire =less resistance) and im sure its a bunch of work. Maybe your old bike had damaged wires, so replacing it with new wire, larger wire and possibly a shorter route helped. If your 919 has a tough time starting maybe think about getting a new battery.
