help with carbon steerer springloaded top cap


bike writer

I'm very experienced with traditional headsets/topcaps, but I've never
taken apart a topcap that comes with an all carbon fork/steerer tube.

So I take my Cane Creek 1 1/8 threadless topcap off; it's on a
all-carbon Zeus fork. I put it back in like I normally do a "normal"
headset, but is there something I need to make sure not to screw up?

I tightened it back down to the point of being "tight but not crazy
gorrila tight." The handlebar turns nicely, no ratcheting. The stem
bolts are tightened down properly. But that springloaded topcap is
making me wonder if I screwed up. There's no slop back and forth with
the brake on, if that matters, but is there protocol to be followed
with this dang springloaded item that keeps making me think I did it
all wrong?

I'd like to avoid a "I turned left but the handlebar stayed straight"
