The purpose of the extended stem is for a more comfortable bar height. Having the bars higher up will allow you to ride more aggresively making it easier to hold on while standing up, or at least in an attack position. Other things that are good about aftermarket stems, are antivibe bushings to take out that nasty vibration. Not all stems coming with antivibe but when I need to upgrade I will definitely go with it. :)

steering stem, at least in houser setup, is designed to better clear the tie rods due to the long travel design. So its more than just ride height and ect.
