Base on the photos it looks like:
A V1 crank (105, Ultegra, XTR) would fit in a V2 spindle. It wouldn't go all the way down the splines but would go as far as it does on a V1 and should be secure.
A V2 crank (XT, LX, etc.) would NOT work on a V1 spindle as the splines aren't long enough to allow the crank arms to seat fully.
Is this correct?
