We offered our advice, you asked.

I meet riders every weekend on backroads rides that have been on their bike for 2 yrs etc etc. But they ride w the memorized corners from their neighborhood to school etc. Unless they can control their ego and adrenaline, they usually end up in the ditch. Its a sad practice but there are a several I know that take mental bets on whos wrecking/riding off on our rides; and by all nature our rides are very tame(like 10-20 over tops) but it still happens.

And what do we see? First bike,minimal gear, flat center tires, oversized bike for rider experience and usually a loud azz exhaust, stickers, bling, rearsets, levers etc etc.

Trackdays are the best investment you could ever make on your motorcycle experience whether you solely commute, looking to improve awareness skills, ride faster on backroads, or learn how you can control your bike better.

For that matter, I will say it once more: There are a handful of people on here that will ever outride a 250r. Im not close to one of them.

Oh yeah I heard oversized cams are a good to get to

The 636 is a great bike, we raced one in '06 and it resonded well to the right combination of mods.

Leo Vince or M4 exhaust, PCIII, BMC air filter and stacks and a few other tricks.

You should also look into upgrading the brakes and possibly a suspension set up.
Give me a call in the a.m. and I can discuss some options for you.

there is alot more to a bike than just power and speed. Like braking handling traction, power delivery etc.... These things are so highly tuned now a days its gonna take alot of know how and money to make it much faster. The biggest improvement will probably be getting on a track and getting some seat time and watching everyone faster than you and see what they are doing different. If you just want a really fast 636 you can look into getting some motor work done. I don't know how much KWS messes with kawi's but they got it figured out with the zuks. Yank that motor out, send it to them with a big wad of cash and they will get you some more power.

For me the most important part of a bike is tires. Thats what puts it all to the ground.
