Actually you ended up selling your bike with the cage on it, lol

350 is for the cheap one...

I don't feel like running 2 calipers for 4 break pads... it's about personal preference.

I've owned different cages since I started stunting. Some good and some were bad. The new fi chromoly is tough as . But I wouldn't recommend one for slow wheelie learning curve/circles. No matter what cage you own, after a hard drop...replace your motor mount bolts if they are bent. Nothing worse than having to re-tap your motors bolt threading.

so what's the best way to start? buy a street ready 636 and start adding stunt parts to that or just buy a stunt ready 636 and take a chance of issues along the way?

A good fixer is to upgrade the bolt size. I believe the motor mount bolt is a 10. Re-tap to a 12 and you'll be golden. I know Shockey or Big Scott did that to their F4i and never had a problem since.

FYI this is incase you strip the motor mount threading.
