    NO. The first and the last headsets that you link to will work. The 2011 EMD uses a standard external bearing head set, the 4 series and the S8 are external bearing headsets and will work fine. The middle one you link to is a ZS3, the ZS stands for Zero Stack. The Zero Stack is for bikes that have a larger head tube that is milled out so that the bearing cups and bearings rest down inside the head tube. ZS headsets are NOT compatible with frames designed for external cup and bearing headsets like your 11 EMD. Now if you had a 2012 EMD it would be different.
