The other day I got my new 2013 stolen heist and the stem slips really bad. I was wondering if there was any way to fix it or just wait till it gets broken in or what! Any thing will probably help!

Take it apart and clean the bars and all of the clamping area really clean. Then, grease the stem bolts a bit and then put everything back tightening it in an x-formation. If you don't know what that is or looks like, just go look at a tutorial on how to install a BMX stem on Youtube.
