Stem bolts need to be torqued down properly to keep the whole fork/headset/stem assembly in place. The bolt head would shear off on an aluminum bolt before you get it near to the correct torque spec, not to mention stripping the threads.

Just be careful with the Far and Near tuning kits. Although nice looking, the Aluminium is extremely soft and chews up at the slightest excuse. The allen heads are a tight fit on all my allen keys so you have to be really careful to make sure they are seated fully

The rear Sram Red derailer adjuster bolt was so soft it stripped its thread the first time it was turned. But red bits on silver Sram Red do look Good. Weight saving was minimal but bling factor high
