What Dura Ace brake and shifter cable's do I need for my 2006 Cannondale R1000?

That's Cannondale R1000

I want to replace my brake and shifter cables with some Shimano Dura Ace cables off ebay.
Problem is I don't know what exact parts to order.I know they require two different sizes, but thats it.

I've found some that say Dura Ace SIS but I don't think that's what I need.
I've also found lots that say just plain old Dura Ace with no part number.
There was also one that said will work with 8-9, and 10spd.

Can anyone help me out here?

The SIS stands for Shimano Index System. Those are for the derailleurs and are thinner than brake cables.
I think an STI set of duraace cables come with both the derailleur set (labeled SIS) and the brake cables (labeled dura ace).

On another note, if you are pushing the inner cable through, start at the labeled end. From what I hear, that end is packed with grease which helps in the operation of it all.

So If I purchase seperately I need

SIS for shifting part# SIS SP41,


and a set designated Road brake cable set.

I also notice there is a SIS SP40.What's that for?
Found the answer to what is the sp40? Linkage for the answer
http://cycle.shimano-eu.com/publish/...fference1.html

Acording to that it does matter what direction the sp40 is mounted and it pobably doesn't with the sp41.
I'm guessing the sp40 is old tech.

Buy generic cables from your LBS, about 3 bucks each. No difference between them and so-called namebrand ones.
