Depends on the number of bolts, which also tends to translate to bolt size. On my two-bolt stem I use 100 in-lb. Four bolt stem is more like the 75 in-lbs recommended above.
Use a 1/4" torque wrench for this small stuff. Larger wrenches are graduated in ft-lbs, and a 1/2" wrench is too big (inaccurate) to use below about 10 ft-lb (120 in-lb).
Wish I had one graduated in Nm.
