Default GSXR front Swap Help

okay so i originally started doing the front for my bandit that got sold but kept the front
the yokes i have are 55mm yokes with 54mm forks but sorted that with a shim
now then
i had the bandit stem pressed into the yokes
i have heard the bandit stem is the same as the SV stem is that correct ?
as the stem is poking out about 3-4mm out the bottom of the yoke and the bottom race bearings wont fit its just loose
any advice >?
thank you

the simple solution is to stick with the GSXR stem and buy the correct top bearing. this is well documented to be the correct solution.

best advice i can give is dont fek with the yokes and fit the correct forks, axle and wheel for the job. messing with "bitsa (not busa)" front ends is always a recipe for headaches.
