Probably. But (I might be wrong here) I thought the more rise your stem had, the more slack your steering would be. Hence the reason department store bikes typically have stems almost pointing straight up. Inverting the stem should make steering tighter then, shouldn't it? I suppose the difference between 5 and -5 won't be all that noticeable though. Not as significant as say 15 degrees to -15 or something.
