steering stem

I broke one of the bolts that holds the steering stem in place at the top was wondering if I rode with only one screw if it would effect the way it handles ... have to get new bolt and tap it out ..

Can you cut a slit in it and screw it out with a flat head screwdriver? Or drill a small hole in it and use a bolt extractor?

It will definitely affect handling. Try to get an extractor. There are two styles for the situation you have here. In all my experience, the corkscrew style always works better than the other style.

Kilroy nailed it, Try to use a extractor on it. Good choice on the Houser stem. I personally would hold off riding until its fixed, the block will hold somewhat with the other bolt but it wont be as tight and it will move causing more stress on the other bolt. Welcome to the Forum Phil.
