    If they are thin washers like shims they will be for above the upper crown race and below the top cover to apply pre-load to the bearings.

    The idea is that you use either 1, 2 or none so that he seal on the top cover works as a seal and that you have sufficient contact between the top cover and the upper crown race to pre-load the bearings.

    Thanks Rusty, that makes sense.

    Hi all,

    Just received another new headset for my 2010 Meta. It seems to have a fairly decent appetite for them!

    Quick question. There are 2 very thin aluminium spacers included in the kit, which I bought from Commencal themselves. I’m baffled as to where they would fit when installing them?

    The kit was basically, 2 x bearings, top cap and star nut, crown race, top spacer and these two aluminium spacers.

    Any idea?

    Thanks

    Colin
