Most stems are anodized aluminum, so you have to sand it to bare metal with like 120grit then spray it with self etching primer. Then hit with 220 and 320 then prep/tape off/paint...

dont sand it down.. used oven cleaner.. it willl make it look alot clean and wont leave scratch marks. also if you have like a edged logo on it, it will show up instead off sanding it off
