I am currently running Shimano Ultegra. I would like to replace my cassette for a different gear range. I noticed that Dura Ace cassettes are a bit lighter than Ultegra. Are there any compatablity issues with running a DA cassette with Ultegra Deraillers, chain, etc.? (9sp to 9sp of course)

Thanks, Hap.

P.S. After the cassette I might look to switch to a DA crankset. Any issues here? Would it be better to do both at the same time? Thanks again.

All Shimano 9 speed systems are fully compatible with each other. You will have no problems with either the cassette or crank.
