Starter drag

Just had my motor built, 107 with 10.25/1 compression and compression releases installed, I've been noticing when the bike gets hot it almost doesn't want to turn over . Is this common ? If so what's a good high torque starter ??

With compression releases you shouldn't feel the starter struggle. Sounds like weak battery or loose cables. I doubt an aftermarket starter would make a diff. Compression releases blow off more than enough compression to make the engine easy to spin.

That said. You said S&S 570s did you also do get easy start cams? If so it would make the engine harder to start having both EZ starts and ACRs. Wouldn't cause a slow turn over, but rather insufficient compression to light the fire.
