Hi , does anyone here have any clue as to how I tighten the play out of a kahlkoff intregale headset ?

I see that there are two parts that scew out of each other to create the pressure once the stem is locked on but they wont stay in position despite me tighten all the visible bolts ,

Thanks if anyone can help I have never seen a headset like this before.

loosen the stem bolts and the top cap bolt push it all down as far as you can and use the top cap bolt to compress the stem on to the fork then tighten the stem bolts.

looks like it was done in reverse lol.

Doesn't the Kalkhoff use a design that isn't quite the same as a conventional set up. I can't for the life of me remember what it is at the moment though. :(

Looks like you're right Eddie, judging from this image showing no side clamp bolts. Weird.

Here you go. :)

You can skip the handlebar and ancillaries removal.
Well found Eddie!

But as for the design, I have to ask "Why?", when previous methods have been so much simpler.

It's bit like "Why use a sentence when a whole paragraph will do?"

It is rather like trying to find an answer for a problem that doesn't exist.

As shown by example with this thread, it takes a simple task and turns it into a head scratching annoyance.
