I don't know about the specific setting for the 636...but I've seen most steering head bearings right around 15ftlbs. I think the average person applying pressure to snug a nut is about 7-8ftlbs. Just over twice that is about right.

Most manuals ask for an initial torque setting of around 15 ft/lbs to set the bearings, the you back them off to just over finger tight, like 2 ft/lbs and then use about 76 ft/lbs for the top triple nut.
