So im fitting my 1 & 1/8 headset and the dust cover/ top mount is not fitting flush, which is rideable but bugging me to hell. plus if i leave it like this the bearings wont last long.
i think that the issue is that the compression ring that sits on the top bearing is too high but it wont physically go down any further. i think i need a lower profile compression ring. second opinion?
these normally come integral to the headsets anyone know where i can find one?
Did you get to the bottom of the problem with this?
Was the crown race set correctly? It all looks off-kilter
