Subject: [Classicrendezvous] gb stem

Hi all. My Raleigh Super Tourer has a GB stem. Recently I decided to yank the bars up a bit, gave them a bit too much umph, and pulled the stem/bars out (what can I say -- I'm Jackie Chan's stunt double). After doing this I noticed something a little disconcerting: the stem doesn't seem to have a min insertion line. Is this common? How much stem should I leave in b4 I start risking injury?
