Installation Instructions—FSA Headset
Mounting crown race on fork steerer:
1. Ensure that fork steerer is clean and free of metal chips, dirt and paint.
2. Apply a thin layer of grease to the crown race seat on the fork steerer.
3. Tap the crown race on to the steerer using a crown race installation tool.
Note: Use the correct fitting on the installation tool to ensure no damage is done to
the crown race.
Pressing cups into head tube:
Non-integrated models only, skip to step #5 for integrated models.
1. Face & ream the head tube to ensure ends are square and parallel to each other and
the proper bore diameter. Make sure head tube is free of debris and paint.
2. Apply a thin layer of grease to the inside surfaces of the head tube.
3. Press cups in to head tube using a headset press & setting tool.
4. If bearings were removed for cup installation, reinstall bearings into cups.
Note: Ensure that no pressure is placed on bearings or bearing races by the tool or
tool fittings during installation.
Warning: The headset cups must press in straight. If the headset cups are angled,
damage to the head tube or headset cups may occur.
Headset assembly:
5. Apply a thin layer of grease to bearings, cups, races, and compression rings.
Integrated models only, insert bearings directly into head tube bearing seat.
6. Slide fork steerer through the head tube.
7. Slide upper bearing race compression ring on to steerer and seat against upper
bearing.
8. Slide upper top cap compression ring on to steerer.
9. Slide top cap on to steerer. Ensure that the integrated cable housing stop is facing
forward.
10. Install any headset spacers and stem.
11. Install compression device or star-fangled nut and top cap. Important: A star-fangled
nut should never be installed in a carbon steerer, use only a compression device such
as FSA’s Compressor.
12. Adjust bearing preload by tightening the top screw only until all play is absent from
head assembly and bearings spin freely. Important: The top screw is for bearing
preload only. It is not a fastening screw. Damage may occur if the top screw is
tightened beyond proper bearing preload.
13. Tighten stem bolts according to fork and stem manufacturer’s torque
recommendations.

proof of purchase. Items returned for warranty determination without proof of purchase will be returned at customer’s expense.
It is necessary to return the product to FSA for inspection before any replacement under warranty can be deemed. Only FSA or an Authorized FSA
Warranty Center may determine if a product is warrantable. If the product is not covered under warranty, all replacement, repair, and shipping costs
are responsibility of the customer. At no time may any retailer or distributor make representations of warranty for FSA products without express
written permission from FSA. Should a retailer or distributor replace product before consulting FSA, it is at the sole discretion of the retailer or
distributor and may not be reimbursed by FSA.
Before returning product to FSA, please follow the instructions below to receive a return authorization (RA) number.
Consumers: Claims for warranty must be made through the retail location where the product, or bicycle with FSA original equipment (OEM), was
purchased. The retail location should contact FSA or the closest Authorized FSA warranty center to obtain a RA number. Proof of purchase is

deemed unsafe for use, the product will be returned in an unusable condition to guarantee rider safety. If FSA does not receive an acceptance or
decline of service from customer after 90 days from the date offer is made to customer, then the product becomes the property of FSA and may be
destroyed.
