Recently I decided to raise my Nitto quill stem a bit. I removed it, regreased it, and reinstalled it. I tightened it by going about a quarter turn beyond the point at which I could no longer move the bars.
Now, about a week later, the stem is emitting a slight click sound when I push or pull on it. Might this mean that I have overtorqued? Or is the stem just settling into its new, more comfortable position? Any way to tell without a torque wrench?
Thanks ahead of time for the help--I just don't want to snap the stem in the middle of traffic.
