    Do you grease the threads on the headset cap?

    I just flipped my stem and the threads in the headset cap did not feel greased. It was very squeeky when I removed it. The bike is only a few months old so I'm not sure if they forgot to grease them when it was assembled or they are not supposed to be greased for some reason. So, should I apply grease to them now or leave as-is? Thanks.
