FSA headset - where does this washer go?
#1
My Look carbon fork/frame came with a FSA headset assembly. Included was a thin metal ring, the ID matches the OD of the steer tube. Is this the "special ring" called for in the Look schematic? The picture, however, looks like a cone shape, and I cannot see why they would want me to put an ugly bare metal washer under any top cap, especially a carbon one.

I saw some FSA diagrams, for other headset styles, that show a thin washer placed in top of the bearings and under the cover/cone. No diagrams can be found on the FSA website.

Anyone know about this?

Is this on a threaded or thread-less headset?

If it's threaded then it probably goes between the two top nuts. (part 2.)

Threadless - I was able to confirm it goes on top of top bearings and under the cover/cap. Thanks!
