Whether or not you could thread an existing XL stem would depend on the length and diameter of the part of the stem that's in the lower fork yoke. It will need to project beyond the bottom side of the yoke to install a jam nut on it so it doesn't loosen. I doubt the length on the stock stem would be sufficient for that. The best solution is to have a hybrid stem machined with the correct threads on the bottom.
