Got my headset in the mail today, and I am going to start to build my bike. Just wondering if lithium grease work? Cuz thats all i got right now and im really eager to put it together.

if that gap is still there once you put the stem on and pull it all together with the topbolt on the forks then yes its bad, you need a spacer on there to tak up some room.
