Will the 1098 Showa forks fit a 996 have done a search but haven't found much. I know they will fit in the standard 996 triple clamps but will my standard 996 wheel and brake rotors fit or will i need different offset rotors?The 1098 forks are actually pretty much the same as the xx9 forks. The xx8 bikes use a different diameter upper fork tube, so it won't just fit in. I think the xx8 is 53mm top and 54mm bottom and the 848/1098 is 54mm all the way through. So you'd have to change the triples, which isn't a big deal, you should be able to fit a xx9 triple on there. Even after that, they are radial mounts and you'd have to get a different set of rotors and calipers. Its not a big deal to do any of this... If you want a better front end on your 996, I highly suggest re-building the stock showa's with ohlins inserts. If you want better braking, buy a set of the older gold series 4pod/pad calipers, they work fantastic and mount to all the older forks. Radial mounts are a gimmick and a rebuilt fork is always gonna be better then a stock one...,,,

What are scientific of altitude

The scientific attitude is an approach to investigations that benefits from certain traits :
1.Curiosity or inquisitiveness
6.Ability to accept failure

Bhaskara Rao (1989) stated that the most useful scientific attitudes are open mindedness, critical mindedness, respect for evidence, suspended judgment, intellectual honesty, willingness to change opinion, search for truth, curiosity, rational thinking, etc.

Scientific attitude is really a composite of a number of mental habits, or of tendencies to react consistently in certain ways to a novel or problematic situation. These habits or tendencies include accuracy, intellectual honesty, open-mindedness, suspended judgment, criticalness, and a habit of looking for true cause and effect relationships. It is a cognitive concept; scientific attitudes are normally associated with the mental processes of scientists. These habits are important in the everyday life and thinking, not only of the scientist, but of everyone.
Scientific attitudes possess attributes thought to be either true or false and do not express an evaluative quality. To lessen the semantic confusion, scientific attitudes may be better labeled as "scientific attributes". The attributes of scientific attitude are
  • *rationality
  • *curiosity
  • *open mindedness
  • *aversion to superstitions
  • *objectivity and intellectual honesty
  • *suspended judgment

Hope this helps you. :)

Marantz curiosity question

Hi spanky

The pre power combination would be the preffered rig. Has better power output, and more bang for your buck visually with the extra amp to the rack. The meters look great too. If you can go for them, then, do it. I would :) Just let me know which unit you would like to run up and I will photoshop up a rear view to show you how to connect it together. .
