Well, unfortunately I cannot personally try it however I will say that because the shaft length is the same, the only change of the shaft is that there is a jesus bolt that goes straight through on the head block instead of the 2 pinch type bolts on a DFC head.

I really don't see any reason why it wouldn't work just the same as it does on a 700X.

I replace the 700e dfc and the 700N DFC ... with the new 700X head.

I love how the feathering shaft fit in the new 700x hub....

Yes you can drill out the shaft or you can purchase the new one for the 700X if you aren't comfortable with drilling out the threads.

After a while, I try again and I can not get the 700x head to be OK.

The main shaft of the 800E PRO is too long to obtain good geometry and the axis of the 700E DFC is very short


Any help?
