Do I have to tighten the bolts in my stem in a specific order?
Yes. The bolts tightening the stem to the steerer tube should be tightened ¼- ½ turn at a time. Alternate between the two bolts so both reach recommended torque simultaneously. The bolts tightening the stem cap (faceplate) should be tightened ¼- ½ turn at a time in an “X” pattern. Alternating between all four bolts so the clamp applies pressure evenly to the handlebar. Failure to follow proper bolt tightening sequence can cause the stem to not be secure on the steerer tube, and cause damage to carbon handlebars.
