it comes with the original FSA headset,
So, it's 6 years old. Maybe buy a new one? They don't last forever.

Hint. Take the individual bearings and hold the outer race in one hand and turn with some pressure the inner race with the fingers of the other and see if you feel anything.

Here's another tip. If you are a thrifty person such as myself. The upper and lower bearings (Campy or "Italian" style btw), are interchangeable. It's the lower one that gets all the abuse from water and grit. If the old upper is still OK, you could try flushing and regreasing what was the lower bearing, and then swapping them. If the lower bearing is totally shot, just replace it and leave the old upper in place.
