Look KG461 - Look Ergopost 2 compatibility

I'm putting together a NOS KG461. It uses an internal wedge clamp for the
seatpost. Anyone know if the Look Ergopost 2 will work or will the wedge
crush the carbon?

Heard from Look:

The ergopost 2 will work just fine. In addition to greasing the bolt threads, make sure you put a little grease on the surfaces of the wedge so that they will not bind and cause you to over-tighten the bolt. The correct torque for this bolt is 12-15 NM.
