Help me! Headset problem
Hey, how are you guys?
That's my first post here, and sorry if this is the wrong place for this question.
I have a Scott Gambler DH 20 2010, and a issue with my headset showed-up.
The Bearings (is that the english name? the little balls inside the headset) are old, and they aren't working as they should.
The stock headset I have according to some website specifications is the following one:
"1.5" Reducer to 11/8", semi-integrated FSA Orbit E 1.5R"
Is there any bearing replacement kit i can get? Where?
Bikeshops here in Brazil didn't help at all, i might have to order it.
If not, which headset can i get to replace it? (I need it cheap hahaha)
if you can get the bearing size then you should beable to get a direct replacement from any bearing manufacturer. if you are able to find replacement then look for something like ***, or skf. these are some of the best and last longer.

if you're having no joy finding replacements then get a new headset, there are lots of reducers on the market. i had a chris king devoltuion for 4 years on my 09 dt, its still going strong.
is this your headset.
FSA Orbit Z 1.5R Reducer Headset
if so i had a quick look on google and cant seem to find that bearing part no anywhere, seems be sold out, maybe discontinued. have a look yourself. if you get no joy then maybe time for a new headset.
hmmmmmmmmm Alright mate! Thanks for the reply.
Yea i think is that one! Not 100% sure tho, it looks like him hahah...
Which headset would fit my bike?
