You can only raise the stem if there are spacers on top of it, and some spare steerer tube. At least, that's what I think you are getting at… :unsure:

Jacques, as Tumbleweed said, if you have spacers on top of your stem, you can remove the topcap, and the two side bolts, slide it off the steerer tube, and place the extra spacers below the stem. If you do not have spare steerer tube left to play with, flip the stem around so that it points upwards, (almost like a morning glory), and remember to tighten the top cap bolt first (not to tight, but enough to pull the stem into place), and then tighten the two side bolts, using the correct torque value. If it is a carbon steerer tube, do not exceed 6nm.

Is there a specific trick to doing this on a "Silverback Saturn" that makes it different to any other bike?

It's 'out there' man - somewhere in... RANBURG ? :unsure:

 

To OP. Dude, my suggestion is to take it to your Local Bike Shop. Out.

if there isn't any more steerer to move the stem up - then look at getting a stem with more of an angle, and / or a set of handlebars with more of a rise.

 

Post a pic or two of the current setup :thumbup:

Dont see spacers on top of stem, i have remove the topcap, and the two side bolts, but if i make the stem any tallet i cant tighten it again as the bolts dont reach and the stem stays loose.

yeah you've run out of steerer, so your stem's going to have to stay where it is. seems you already have a riser bar - try get a stem with a more extreme angle, or a bar with even more rise. how low is it when you're on the bike?

Echo that.

Looks like you're already maxed out on spacers, positive rise stem and high rise handlebars as it is.
