Mavic Ksyrium ES - Dura Ace 10 sp Cassette

I have a Mavic Ksyrium ES rear wheel with a Dura Ace 7800 10 speed cassette.

Does anyone have the specifications for the type of spacer or spacers that need to be installed onto the freewheel before the cassette is installed. The wheel as supplied new with my '07 S-Works Roubaix had two spacers installed under the Dura Ace cassette.

I am in the process of replacing the Dura Ace 7800 10 speed cassette and I would like to understand exactly what is specified for use on this freewheel. The Mavic web site just indicates a spacer is to be in place; but, gives no details as to thichness of the spacer and only one is shown in the graphic.

Does anyone know what is required?

You should have 2 spacers: a thicker one which is required for all Mavic wheels in the 8/9/10 speed family and a thinner one which is neded for 10 speed shimano casettes. Bottom line is keep both spacers there and just replace the cassette. FYI, freewheel is not a term involved in this discussion; you have a casette which goes on a hub.

Much thanks for the comments. I appreciate the clarification on the nomenclature.
