I bough a wrench allen key set with these sizes
1/4-Inch drive - 5/64, 3/32, 1/8, 5/32, 3/16, 7/32 and 1/4-Inch
3/8-Inch drive - 9/32, 5/16, 3/8, 7/16, 1/2-Inch
1/2-Inch drive - 9/16-Inch

here is the link: http://www.amazon.com/Neiko-10075A-Pro-Grade-Wrench-13-Piece/dp/B000GYLCHK/ref=sr_1_2?s=hi&ie=UTF8&qid=1374561263&sr=1-2&keywords=allen+wrench+socket

will it work for my stem bolt?

Sorry to say, but you need metric and you bought standard. You could use it but I wouldn't recommend it on account of stripping the bolts.

The 7/32 would be your best bet though.

Yep, basically no bike parts use standard. Everything on my bike is 4mm, 5mm and 6mm.

You may need other sizes in the future, my crank bolts are 7mm I know some that are 8, some have 5. My seat clamp is 5mm also so it comes in handy having a set.

I just need the 6mm to tighten the F*** out of my stem. It's brand new stock with the bike and it slips when i tightened it hard so that's why i need a 6mm wrench key.

but at some point u will need more wrenches. my brake lever uses a 4 mm my seat clamp a 5 mm my cranks use 5 mm and 6 mm and my forks use a 8 mm... thats why he is saying to buy a full set... they really arent that expensive if you wanted you could go to harbor freight and they also have them super cheap...

Tightening it more won't help. Take off the bars and stem and sand the clamping areas on both.

I just did that 30 minutes ago and i sanded my bars and my steam both sides and then tightened it as hard as i could. I then went for a 1 foot bunny hop and my bars slipped. I have the mission converge stem
http://www.danscomp.com/products/370280/Mission_Converge_FL_Stem.html
i'm assuming it sucks.

Sucks that i have to wait till Tuesday to get my s&m redneck XLT, hopefully that one is good.

And does anyone know some good bars i can get to go with the s&m redneck xlt stem, i'm looking for some 8.75 bars.

Get a BBB Mini Socket Set, I have one, it's nice and small, almost small enough to fit in a pocket, it cost about £20 ($30ish). It has 1-6,8,10mm Allen Keys, Flathead Screwdriver, 2 sizes of Phillips Screwdrivers, 8-10,12-16mm Wrench sizes, and Torq drivers as well.
