What gauge wire for battery starter cable?


I am seriously considering adding a starter to my Snapper RER. I can't seem to find a definitive answer for what size cable for the battery cables and the solenoid to starter connection.

Common sense indicates that 6 gauge is probably enough but if anyone knows or has an opinion I am more than willing to listen.
