    Reuse SFN when replacing headset?

    I am replacing my headset and am wondering if it's OK to reuse the old star fangled nut that is in my fork? Or is it best practice to pound it out and install a new one? From a visual inspection it looks like its in good condition.

    Thanks.

    more than likely removing that SFN will destroy it. get a new one, they are relatively inexpensive

    Reread the original post and I may have been hasty in my reply...

    If you are not replacing the fork then use the one already in the fork. No need to replace one unless it is damaged or you are moving to a new fork.
