Before you order or buy a new stem, be sure to measure your bars. 1 and 1/8" sounds about right on the steerer end from what you measured, it's extremely common. However, the other side might be 25.4mm or 31.8mm (you wrote 31.8mm in your post). So measure the bars where the stem clamps to them, and if they're more than an inch, it's 31.8mm. If it's about an inch, it's 25.4mm or 26mm, and you'll probably want to measure closer just to be sure. In all likelihood, it's 31.8.
