Two questions on shimano ultegra shift leversAndy

I have the 2000 Shimano Ultegra shift levers (flight deck) and I have two questions:

1) Can I install a new shift cable that has the nifty little gear indicator that's built in to the cable itself? (like the new dura-ace shifters have)

2) If I decide to keep my Flight-Deck computer (which I only like for the gear display) can I upgrade the mount kit so that I have a function button on each shift lever instead of the old style where both functions buttons are on the right lever?

If it's a simple matter of replacing the mount kit and the rubber hoods, I may do it.
Yup and yup.Spoke Wrench

The only change you have to make to use the 6500RS wire harness is to also replace the rubber hoods.

I'm betting that you keep the secondary display in the trip odometer mode. If you normally kept it in the cadence function, You wouldn't be accidentally stopping the computer.
