I finally found some bars I liked so I score them. I then bought a stem that was supposed to be 22.2 but is 21.1. The stem is a cool Sakae that I would like to use. Can a guy shim it to work? The bars fit fine but the quill has a little extra space. The wedge tightens but there is a little play at the top which is unacceptable. Thanks

Had the same problem. Tall apes that were 7/8 stem and bars. Tried using shims on the knuckle but way too much play. Ordered BMX stem 21.1 quilt and 22.2 knuckle with the 905 Wald shim. Problem solved.
