The power is pretty damn good for what it is, but there's now way to compare it to the 636. Believe it or not this bike has less than 2700 original miles on it.
I bought it from the 2nd owner. The 1st owner rode it for 1 month after he bought it then stored it for 12 years, (with a full tank of gas. The orig owner sold it to a guy he works with who told him all it needed was a new battery, & a current tab. The 2nd owner went out got a new battery, new tab for the plate & tried to start it. He ran the battery down of course got fed up & stored it for another 5 years before deciding to sell it.
I drained the tank, filled it with a couple fists full of nuts, shook the hell out of it, emtierd the nuts washed it out with detergent, put a blank off plate were the petcock & fuel switch holes were, then acid etched it. There are 2 real good kits you can choose from, either the KREEM, or the POR-15, both do an excellent job, (if you follow the directions & are patient).
