I posted a thread asking about stem problems and turns out I need new bars, so I though I’d get a decent stem aswell as my current one is a bit rubbish,
Is there anything I can do before or whilst installing them so they both last a while ?

Thanks

Copper grease if you have any on the stem threads if not don't worry about it.
Always tighten in an x pattern.
Try not to move your bars too much it will wear out the stem.

I don't crash, I do random gravity checks...

I really like the shadow chula stem, it had a wider and fuller clamping area, no problems.
Just make sure it’s tightened EVENLY and well.

I just bought a new eclat stem and it has been slipping today. Bars were crooked 4 seperate times today.

I havent had a stem slip since I bouggt my first aftermarket stem (colony squareback frontload). Got a primo that hasnt slipped once and this Eclat has me confused.

R25 fork with no grease or oil on it. No paint on the stem, it is anodized. Tried tightening the hell out of it and still happened...

Pretty frustrated.

I tried tightening it past hell...we are in the Devil's Personal Chamber now. We shall see.
