Headset bearing covers

Have just noticed that on my Cervelo S2 you can see the top bearing underneath the bearing cap as the bearing cap is a bit shallow. Does anyone know where I can buy another one...searching the internet all I can find are headset top covers not bearing covers. Just to clarify I mean the bit between the frame and the spacers.

    Try your local bike shop.

    I got a Ritchey WCS top cover out of their spairs box from one of my LBS when I needed one to replace the conical one from my cane creek headset.

    What make is your headset? Unfortunately, most manufacturers only sell them as a unit.

    There's alway going to be a gap - if there wasn't, you couldn't turn the bars!
    I searched for ages to get a shallower one for an FSA Orbit carbon - the standard one was too tall - could find them from the US, but not the UK - ended up buying another headset.
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..
