    Are you saying?

    Are you saying that you used a non-ICBM race with an ICBM headset?

    'Cause, you know, that could be the source of your problem - just sayin'.

    looks like you need to yank off that race from the fork and install the race that came with the headset onto the fork. basically replace the new race with the old race. headset races are usually not compatible from one headset to another

    Several places sell them - you may need a new one if you don't have all the pieces.
