Chorus Headset - 3 questionsyofatchance
Dec 2, 2001 11:00 AM
Installing HS bearings. Three questions: 1) bigger bearings on top or bottom? 2) bearings should face cup or race? 3) the plastic thing that is supposed to hold the top race in place seems to push the top cap up a little high - is this normal? Thanks.

Didn't get any instructions with that headset? Go to campagnolo.com. Their website has installation instructions.

yes, but not entirely clear. Instructions appear to have larger bearings in top cup, but this seems to push the plastic retainer and top cap up too high. Instruction link on Campy site isn't working. Thought maybe someone could share some experience.

large bearings on bottom. for the plastic piece, turn top cap upside down and slide down on top of the plastic piece,
press down hard and the plastic piece will slide into place.
then slide top cap off and slide it back down correctly.

Thanks. The top cap still seems a little high, but I think It's right now.
