Starters generally aren't fused; they are usually connected straight through to the battery through the solenoid. The solenoid is, though.
AWG 2 cable would be my choice, but only to the starter. The rest of the cabling can be AWG 4, unless you are connecting to a hi-draw appliance like a windlass.
