We need picture's, and the story I hope your okay. Also if you snapped the stem in half what else is destroyed? To answer your question, I think there's a couple stems listed in the for sale section. But if going after market Houser makes a nice steam.

#1 2008 Honda Trx700xx HMF Performance Exhaust, PCV, Stroked 710cc, 10.5:1 Wiseco Piston, Frt Elka Stage 4's, Fox Podium X rear's, EHS Lid, L8ton 11/16" sway bar, PRM Desert II Bumper & Front Skids.
#2 2008 Trx700xx AMR Reaper, Ehs Big 3, P/P head, Xcalibur Cam, Hard Welded Rockers, +1 In/Ex Valves, +3 Throttle body, 11:1 CP Piston, Elka Stage 3 Legacy Shocks, L8ton 11/16th Sway Bar, PRM Front Skids, Desert II Bumper & Rear Utility Rack.

I was going up a long hill, when tried to change gears to 2 the trx turn off(it was my first time in the hills).. It started to go back because i didnt steped on the back brake(i knew this after it happend that need to step on it) i came off the trx and hold on the steering to try to hold it but it started pulling me down so i just left hold of the trx and it rolled down the hill and made a 360.. When i got to the trx the steering bar was bent down(when i say bed is not the bar but it moved foward) i turned the 4 bolts or screws and moved back up.. I started the trx and kept on riding it on hard trials after 1 hr with no problems i heard a metal broke.. I could turn the steering bar but the wheels didnt.. I stopped and moved the plastic "computer" to see inside the steering and i saw the round tube broken (steering stem).. Soo since i could ride it for 1 hr i think everything is ifine but that

Back breaks are a no no, when sliding down a hill backwards!

Houser stem use to haver some fitting issuses with the fitting.Don't know if they fixed the problems but I run Texeira Tech steering stem , I have a Houser stem also but never used it. I'm on my second stem from Ed Teixeira as the Big Rex tried a backflip during an enduro event . Also bent the frame . Not the best of days.
