The "new" KTM bolt has 12mm of thread length, a "new" KTM stem will accept a maximum of 15mm threads, which adds only 3mm/.125". I'm doubtful that this is enough to make a difference.

I could make the stem and nut out of 7075, which should add considerable strength to the assembly....but is it necessary? Let me know what you all would prefer...I would need to cancel the order for the KTM parts.
